    Hi, 

     

    As you might already know, Hadoop 3.0 has been released few weeks ago, 

     

    The most important feature in this release (in my opinion) was the HDFS Erasure Coding, wich will replace the replication x3 (200% storage overhead). It is a technique that is based on parity blocks, that will decrease the storage overhead to only 50%. 

     

    If it is not already planned, it would be great to add this feature into MapR-FS (MapR-XD).

     

    Cheers
