Can falcon move data from hdfs to non-hdfs storage? I want to move data from hdfs to some external storage area which is non-hdfs. just a simple file system.
To add to what @vramachandran said, Falcon also supports replication to Azure ( http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/incremental-backup-data-hdp-azure-disaster-recovery-burst-cap... and AWS as well.

Have you figured-out this? Can Falcon replicate to ext4 file system, for example? None of the responses above addressed your actual question.
@Constantin Stanca nope.
Falcon uses hadoop distributed filesystem abstraction to do the replication -be it s3 or wasb. It essentially uses distcp, so whatever requirements are there for distcp in terms of accessing a filesystem applies to Falcon replication as well
