The need to backup huge quantities of data has led to the development of a number of distributed deduplication techniques that aim to reproduce the operation of centralized, single-node backup systems in a cluster-based environment. At one extreme, stateful solutions rely on indexing mechanisms to maximize deduplication. However the cost of these strategies(More)
In the era of global-scale services, big data analytical queries are often required to process datasets that span multiple data centers (DCs). In this setting, cross-DC bandwidth is often the scarcest, most volatile, and/or most expensive resource. However, current widely deployed big data analytics frameworks make no attempt to minimize the traffic(More)
User Generated Content (UGC), such as YouTube videos, accounts for a substantial fraction of the Internet traffic. To optimize their performance, UGC services usually rely on both proactive and reactive approaches that exploit spatial and temporal locality in access patterns. Alternative types of locality are also relevant and hardly ever considered(More)
