Thanks a lot for your interest on HA.
If you can invest on NFS filers, it is another option. If you want to try
this, you can use released Hadoop-2 version and try.
but above #2 and #3 will avoid this external hardware dependency.
for #2 you can take a look at HDFS-3399
We are testing with BookeKeeper from last 2/3 months and going well. BK
is progressing on autorecovery and security parts. Almost auto recoverry
done(BOOKKEEPER-237) and will be released in BK 4.2 version very soon. BK
already started work on security part as well. Also this integration part
will come out with next hadoop-2 release as well. Also attached tested
scenarios in HDFS-3399 for your reference if you want to take a look.
Also there is one subTask in that umbrella JIRA for user manual
for #3 you can take a look at HDFS-3077
In this umbrella JIRA work is going on actively.
I am not sure any one working on it.
The advantage here is, you can plugin the shared storage whichever you want.
