The data rebalancing schemes might automatically move data from one DataNode to another if the free space on a DataNode falls below a certain threshold.

In the event of a sudden high demand for a particular file, a scheme might dynamically create additional replicas and rebalance other data in the cluster. These types of data rebalancing schemes are not yet implemented.
