Andrew Wang commented on HADOOP-13061:
--------------------------------------

Somewhat unrelated question related to rs-legacy: it's from the Facebook 
HDFS-RAID implementation right? My recollection is that we added rs-legacy to 
support migration from HDFS-RAID to the HDFS-7285 implementation without 
copying.

However, as it is right now, that zero-copy migration is not possible. 
HDFS-RAID is not striped, it's at the block level. Also, HDFS-RAID combines an 
entire directory of files, whereas HDFS-7285 is on a single file. So, I don't 
think we can natively handle HDFS-RAID files without a lot more work.

[~drankye], if this is accurate, do you think it's still worth keeping the 
rs-legacy codec around?
