Subject HDFS?
Date Fri, 19 Mar 2010 04:28:22 GMT
Hi Derby Developers,

Was wondering if you've considered Hadoop Distributed File System and how it
might be used by Derby? Here are some random thoughts:

It could be interesting to have the roll-forward replication logs written to
HDFS where they will be automatically replicated, then the Derby slave can
read the roll-forward log out of HDFS. Storage of backups is another place
where HDFS might play well. Another idea would be to provide blob storage in
HBase. I don't see any conflict between wanting to use HBase and Derby,
since they really do different things. And in fact, it would be really cool
to see Derby *using* HBase for things like Blob Storage.

It's just a random thought; but HDFS is really an amazing piece of
engineering and it would be interesting to see it leveraged by Derby. In
many "web scale" computing environments, it seems like Hadoop and HDFS are
becoming quite ubiquitous.
