I am new to hdfs. In my java application, I need to perform 'similar operation' over large number of files. I would like to store those files in distributed machines. I don't think, I will need map reduce paradigm. But however I would like to use HDFS for file storage and access. Is it possible (or nice idea) to use HDFS as a stand alone stuff? And, java APIs are available to work with HDFS so that I can read/write in distributed environment ? Any thoughts here will be helpful.
With thanks and regards
