Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is Java based and designed to provide reliable data storage. It is capable of accommodating large groups of servers. When the desired data is downloaded, it is stored in a cache relative to Squid-proxy and contained on HDFS. When the data is requested it is retrieved from HDFS by the Squid-proxy.
