I want to mount the Cloudera Hadoop as a Linux file system over the LAN.
As a setup, I already have the hadoop cluster running on a set of Ubuntu machines. But now I need to be able to use it as a normal file system from a Fedora system over the LAN.
I tried FUSe but two things:
1. Cloudera says FUSE loses data (click here for that comment by a Cloudera employee on the official Cloudera support site)
2. I've had no success making it work the way we want
As a point of clarification, I am using Hadoop ONLY for the file system, not for its other capabilities.
