Not sure it's a real answer. But you can set the replication in HDFS to be what you want, 1, 2, 3, etc. not sure HDFS replication 1 makes sense for your application, but it is configurable.

Subject: [Openstack-operators] Avoiding storage redundancy with Openstack redundant storage and HDFS 3xreplication
A question related to standing up cloud infrastructure for running Hadoop/HDFS.
We are building up an infrastructure using Openstack which has its own
storage management redundancy.
We are planning to use Openstack to instantiate Hadoop nodes (HDFS,
M/R tasks, Hive, HBase)
The problem is that HDFS by design creates three copies of the data,
so there is a 4x times redundancy
which we would prefer to avoid.
I am asking here if anyone has had a similar case and if anyone has
had any helpful solution to recommend.
Thank you in advance,
