SUSTAINABILITY OF HADOOP CLUSTERS

Luis Bautista, Alain April

Abstract

Hadoop is a set of utilities and frameworks for the development and storage of distributed applications in cloud computing, the core component of which is the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). NameNode is a key element of its architecture, and also its “single point of failure”. To address this issue, we propose a replication mechanism that will protect the NameNode data in case of failure. The proposed solution involves two distinct components: the creation of a BackupNode cluster that will use a leader election function to replace the NameNode, and a mechanism to replicate and synchronize the file system namespace that is used as a recovery point.
