Re: Pros and Cons to store data in HDFS

reistlin,

 

There are many, many good reasons to use HDFS as a storage platform for "big data", but the answer about whether it's right for you really depends on your use case.

 

I suggest that you do some research via the "New to Hadoop" resources here:
