  • Distributed writable storage systems typically provide NFS-like semantics and unbounded persistence for files. We claim that for planetary-scale distributed services such facilities are unnecessary and impose an unwanted overhead in complexity and ease of management. Furthermore, wide-area services have requirements not met by existing solutions, in particular capacity management and a realistic model for billing and charging. We argue for ephemeral storage systems which meet these… CONTINUE READING
