Can I save big files(dataset) in Edureka file system?If yes, do I get a separate login to do that.

We have installed hadoop in pseudo distributed mode, which is good for learning purpose. So if your data is  large (beyond 10GB) then, it is not possible to work with in edureka vm.When you install vm, only 20Gb of space is reserved for vm. In production, you will be working with multi node set up which will be provided by your admin team.

To check the capacity of hadoop cluster, kindly fire below command in terminal.

hadoop dfsadmin -report


Hope this resolves your query

In case of any further issue,feel free to revert.
