Kudu Data Storage on SAN

Kudu Data Storage on SAN

Explorer

Hi,

Wanted to know if SAN can be used to store kudu related data instead of a physical HDD on a server.

 

Example:

drwx------. 2 kudu kudu 151552 Mar 9 16:24 consensus-meta
drwx------. 2 kudu kudu 4624384 Mar 9 16:20 data
-rw-------. 1 kudu kudu 681 Nov 16 2017 instance
drwx------. 2 kudu kudu 118784 Mar 9 16:23 tablet-meta
drwx------. 1775 kudu kudu 110592 Mar 9 13:49 wals

 

 

Thanks

Amn

Hi @Amn_468 ,

 

No, Apache Kudu doesn't run on a SAN. It runs on the Cloudera cluster itself and uses the local storage as opposed to HDFS to store data.

Steve
