httpfs for production website

Question asked by andrearruda on Dec 16, 2013
After a small research i found out that i can access files from the cluster by installing the mapr-httpfs package and open the webhdfs URL with the volume/file path. That would be a huge help since i could use this HTTP access to load balance requests to a certain path of our storage that stores static web content.

It there any software/hardware limitation if i use this method to expose certain files to our webserver, such as maximum simultaneous connections, memory overhead, performance, ...?

I imagine setting up a couple of varnish servers using httpfs as backend for specific URIs.
