The file system is, in many ways, the very center of the Big Data universe. It’s the tools provided by the file system that enables an overall structure to a data set, that helps turns it from a vast pool of information to something that can be held and mined for insights. And if there’s a file system that is clearly the star of the show in the Big Data world, it’s HDFS, the key to Hadoop – the open source platform that, for many users, is all but synonymous with Big Data itself. Hadoop is one of the greatest success stories from the open source community.
