        In CDH3 we were having these NameNode, SecondaryNameNode only, that time we faced SPF(single point of failure),If NameNode got down total cluster will be down. But Now in CDH4, this problem is eliminated by using alternate NmaeNode (standby NameNode).

       In CDH4 people they have introduced two NameNodes, and the only one will be in service and the another one will do the work what secondarynamenode does, and comes into service when the working namenode goes down. This feature is called NameNode HighAvailability (NNHA).

Name node and jobtracker are the single points of failures

Name Node is the single point of failure, because there is no backup to the name node, once name node down the total cluster down.
