Presents the features of HDFS, a High-speed Distributed File System. HDFS aims to provide storage to large files so that the read and write performance for such files does not degrade significantly compared to accesses for small files. One application of HDFS is to provide storage of multimedia files, where such files are expected to be large. The design of HDFS is based on three modules: the Large File Service (LFS), the Distributed File Service (DFS) and the Multimedia Library System (MLS). HDFS is implemented as an installable file system in the UNIX operating system kernel and can coexist with existing file systems
