We are new to MapR hadoop and we are not able to understand different between HDFS and MapRFS.

HDFS is very simple

1) You copy the data and it is replicated across all nodes depending upoun the file size and replication factor.

In MapRFS how does it work assuming we have 3 node cluster.We tried to read the document but it is only talking about mounting of the file system.

1) How internally data is stored and managed

2) What happens if I copy only files in KBs (Is there some thing like block size is MapRFS)
