HDFS Explorer, by Red Gate Big Data:
At Red Gate we have been working on some query tools for Hadoop for a while
and while testing we found ourselves endlessly typing hadoop fs. Getting
data sets from our Windows desktops, to the cluster, or inspecting job
output files was just taking too many steps. It should be as easy for us to
access files on HDFS as files on my local drive. So we created HDFS
Explorer, which works just like Windows Explorer, but connects to the
WebHDFS APIs so we can browse files on our clusters.
Solving a pain point. Making HDFS more accessible and thus friendlier. Very good reasons for such a tool.
