Migrating your data from HDFS to Ozone

You can migrate data from your existing HDFS deployment to Ozone for benefits such as scaling the metadata to billions of files; supporting denser, more cost-effective storage nodes as a part of a strategy to segregate storage and compute; or cold storage and archival storage needs.

This document assumes that you have an existing HDFS cluster from which you want a part or whole data to be moved to Ozone. The Ozone service can exist in the same cluster as HDFS or in a different cluster.
