Workshop on Distributed Storage Systems and Coding for BigData


Introduction to workshop

Mass storage is critical in the era of BigData. Dispersing a huge data file in a large-scale distributed storage system is necessary in order to enhance reliability and availability. By introducing redundancy in the system, we can protect the data integrity from node failures. As node failures occur frequently in large-scale storage system, a considerable volume of Internet traffic is dedicated to the repair of failed storage nodes. Several classes of distributed storage codes, such as regenerating codes, locally repairable codes and so on, are introduced recently to reduce this overhead and disk input/output cost. Nevertheless, there still remains substantial research work for advancing distributed storage coding and systems in both theory and applications. This workshop will provide a platform for academic researcher and industrial engineers to discuss and share their recent works and practical experiences.


Research topics included in the workshop

Contributions devoted to the evaluation, optimization, or enhancement of distributed storage systems, as well as solutions for mass storage, are solicited. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
