We are currently in the process of writing a paper regarding hadoop and
we would like to reference any attempt to remove the single point of
failure of the Namenode. We have found in various presentations some
efforts (like dividing the namespace between more than one namenodes if
i remember correctly) but the search for a concrete paper on the issue
came to nothing.
Is anyone aware or has participated in such an effort?
