NameNode is a node, where Hadoop stores all the file location information in HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System). We can say that NameNode is the centerpiece of an HDFS file system which is responsible for keeping the record of all the files in the file system, and tracks the file data across the cluster or multiple machines.
