Hive with HDFS Federation

Hive with HDFS Federation

New Contributor



We have enabled HDFS Federation and want to have seperate namespaces - one for each department (I know we are almost trying to setup a functional multi-tenant env).


We also want to have a seperate Hive server - one for each department and talking to respective namenode.


How can we achieve this?


- One metastore per department having rootFS configured?

- Would it be possible to have two different Hive services in one cluster, working independently with namenodes/nameservices associated with each of the department?
