HDFS for customer information file

0 votes
I need to create a GUI application to help my company's sales people to add and edit customer information. Would HDFS be appropriate for this customer information file?

Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance!

No, because HDFS is optimized for write-once, streaming access for relatively large files.

HDFS is designed to support very large files. Applications that are compatible with HDFS are those that deal with large data sets. These applications write their data only once but they read it one or more times and require these reads to be satisfied at streaming speeds. HDFS supports write-once-read-many semantics on files.

Hope this will answer your query to some extent.
