Can falcon move data from hdfs to non-hdfs storage?

Super Guru

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 ( and AWS as well.

@Sunile Manjee

Have you figured-out this? Can Falcon replicate to ext4 file system, for example? None of the responses above addressed your actual question.

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
