Erasure coding for distributed storage systems

Barbi, Roberta ; Mercier, Hughes (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

A huge quantity of data is generated and stored every day. Preeminent examples are the 300 million photos that get uploaded daily to Facebook or the 156 million emails sent every minute. Furthermore, it is remarkable that almost 90% of the data in the world has been generated in the last 2 years. This humongous quantity of data is typically hosted in data centres located in different geographic...

Practical erasure codes for storage systems : the study of entanglement codes, an approach that propagates redundancy to increase reliability and performance

Estrada Galiñanes, Verónica del Carmen ; Felber, Pascal (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

This dissertation deals with the design of practical erasure codes for storage systems. Hardware and logical disk failures are a common source of system failures that may lead to data loss. Nevertheless, it is predicted that spinning disks would remain the standard storage medium in large datacenters. Cloud storage needs efficient codes to become reliable despite its low-cost components. As...
