On the Locality of Codeword Symbols
TLDR
We establish a tight bound for the redundancy n-k in terms of the message length, the distance, and the locality of information coordinates. Expand

Challenges, design and analysis of a large-scale p2p-vod system
TLDR
We describe and discuss the challenges and the architectural design issues of a large-scale P2P-VoD system based on the experiences of a real system deployed by PPLive. Expand

Can internet video-on-demand be profitable?
TLDR
We show that peer-assisted video-on-demand can dramatically reduce server bandwidth costs, particularly if peers prefetch content when there is spare upload capacity in the system. Expand

Rethinking erasure codes for cloud file systems: minimizing I/O for recovery and degraded reads
TLDR
We present an algorithm that finds the optimal number of codeword symbols needed for recovery for any XOR-based erasure code and produces recovery schedules that use a minimum amount of data. Expand

  • 1 March 2013
TLDR
To flexibly explore the trade-offs between storage space and access efficiency in reliable data storage systems, we describe two classes of erasure resilient coding schemes: basic and generalized pyramid codes. Expand
