beat way to access HDFS as a normal file system

New Contributor

Hi ,

 

I have a requirement to access the HDFS as a normal file system.Files will be stored just like an archive and users will  browse through the folders and files ,view and append the files .There will be multiple users accessing the file system .What will be the best solution in this scenario ,cloudera FUSE DFS or NFS Gateway for HDFS or something else ? and what will be the performance of  such a system if hundreds of users try to access the mount.

I think NFS gateway is preferred over fuse dfs.
