Two Virtual File Drivers (VFDs) have been introduced with HDF5-1.10.6 and HDF5-1.12.0:

  • The S3 VFD enables access to an HDF5 file via the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
  • The HDFS VFD enables access to an HDF5 file with the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS).

The following Property List APIs were introduced to support these VFDs:

FunctionDescription
H5P_GET_FAPL_HDFSGets the information of the given HDFS virtual file driver
H5P_GET_FAPL_ROS3Gets the information of the given Read-Only S3 virtual file driver
H5P_SET_FAPL_HDFSSets up Read-Only HDFS virtual file driver
H5P_SET_FAPL_ROS3Sets up Read-Only S3 virtual file driver

Changes were also made to the HDF5 command line tools to support these VFDs.
