—Erasure correcting codes are widely used to ensure data persistence in distributed storage systems. This paper addresses the repair of such codes in the presence of simultaneous failures. It is crucial to maintain the required redundancy over time to prevent permanent data losses. We go beyond existing work (i.e., regenerating codes by Dimakis et al.) and(More)
The explosion of the amount of data stored in cloud systems calls for more efficient paradigms for redundancy. While replication is widely used to ensure data availability, erasure correcting codes provide a much better trade-off between storage and availability. Regenerating codes are good candidates for they also offer low repair costs in term of network(More)
—The availability of end devices of peer-to-peer storage and backup systems has been shown critical for usability and for system reliability in practice. This has led to the adoption of hybrid architectures composed of both peers and servers. Such architectures mask the instability of peers thus approaching the performances of client-server systems while(More)
Modern storage systems now typically combine plain replication and erasure codes to reliably store large amount of data in datacenters. Plain replication allows a fast access to popular data, while erasure codes, <i>e.g</i>., Reed-Solomon codes, provide a storage-efficient alternative for archiving less popular data. Although erasure codes are now(More)
Monitoring a system is the ability of collecting and analyzing relevant information provided by the monitored devices so as to be continuously aware of the system state. However, the ever growing complexity and scale of systems makes both real time monitoring and fault detection a quite tedious task. Thus the usually adopted option is to focus solely on a(More)
—On-demand video delivery with a Content Delivery Network (CDN) solely based on set-top-boxes(STB) has been introduced recently. This architecture combines the load balancing and fault tolerating features of peer-to-peer systems with stableness of a server based CDN, by storing contents in STBs. Since STBs usually have much longer online time than(More)

Devices forming a Home Network have different capabilities and interfaces, discouraging users to organize their large digital content libraries. To help users, we propose to organize the Home Network according to a gateway-centric architecture, where the content access unification is realized at the file system level and where no additional software(More)
—In this paper, we study cache policies for cloud-based caching. Cloud-based caching uses cloud storage services such as Amazon S3 as a cache for data items that would have been recomputed otherwise. Cloud-based caching departs from classical caching: cloud resources are potentially infinite and only paid when used, while classical caching relies on a fixed(More)
