In Hadoop, Sqoop can be used to store big data files in a single field. This is done based on the type of data that is being stored. There are two specific types of data that can be stored:

  •  CLOB - Character Large Objects 
  •  BLOB - Binary Large Objects 
In Sqoop, large objects are managed by importing them into a file known as "LobFile" which is short for a Large Object File. These LobFiles have the capability to store large sized data records.
