Maintaining data availability is one of the biggest challenges in decentralized online social networks (DOSNs). The existing work often assumes that the friends of a user can always contribute to the sufficient storage capacity to store all data. However, this assumption is not always true in today's online social networks (OSNs) due to the fact that(More)
Online Social Network (OSN) services are very popular nowadays. In order to protect the data privacy, Decentralized Online Social Network (DOSN) services have been proposed. In DOSN, the data published by a user and the data replicas are only stored in the friend circle of the user. Although full replication can improve Data Availability (DA), pure DOSNs(More)

The processing of massive small files is a challenge in the design of distributed file systems. Currently, the combined-block-storage approach is prevalent. However, the approach employs traditional file systems like ExtFS and may cause inefficiency for random access to small files. This paper focuses on optimizing the performance of data servers in(More)
