NFS access to HDFS

Brandon Li, co-author of the HDFS NFS Gateway proposal (PDF) tracked on HDFS-4750:

With NFS access to HDFS, you can mount the HDFS cluster as a volume on client machines and have native command line, scripts or file explorer UI to view HDFS files and load data into HDFS. NFS thus enables file-based applications to perform file read and write operations directly to Hadoop. This greatly simplifies data management in Hadoop and expands the integration of Hadoop into existing toolsets. […] Bringing the full capability of NFS to HDFS is an important strategic initiative for us.

So besides browsing the files stored in HDFS, which to me doesn’t sound too exciting, you’ll be able to upload or even stream data directly to HDFS. Now, that’s cool!
