Recently, traditional erasure codes such as Reed-Solomon (RS) codes have been increasingly deployed in many distributed storage systems to reduce the large storage overhead incurred by the widely adopted replication scheme. However, these codes require significantly high resources with respect to network bandwidth and disk I/O during recovery of missing or(More)
The explosion of big data stored in distributed file systems calls for more efficient storage paradigms. While replication is widely used to ensure data availability, erasure codes provide a much better tradeoff between storage and availability. Reed-Solomon (RS) codes are the standard design choice, however, their high repair cost is often considered an(More)
Distributed file system has emerged in recent years as an efficient solution to store the large amount of data produced anytime and anywhere. In order to guarantee data reliability, it is necessary to introduce redundancy to the storage systems. Compared to simple replication, practical systems are increasingly adopting erasure codes for better storage(More)
