Can we use HDFS to store git repositories?

0 votes
My requirement is to create a scalable git repository both for high availability, automatic failover and performance. I read somewhere that HDFS is well suited for such cases. But I don't know how to use HDFS for git repositories.

Can anyone tell me how to use hdfs to store git repository?

Yes, it is possible to use HDFS to store git repositories. What you have to do is that you have to use FUSE (MountableHDFS). Once you are able to mount HDFS it is just like any other file system and you should be able to use that mount (HDFS) to store git repository. Refer the below links for details:

https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/MountableHDFS

Hope it will answer your question to some extent.
