Data Protection: One Size Does Not Fit All

April 10, 2013

In object storage applications, cluster sizes run the gamut from just a few nodes built into a medical imaging modality to thousands of nodes spanning multiple datacenters. Fulfilling the economic and manageability promises of a unified storage approach means using the best protection scheme for each particular use case. The proposed solution leverages both replication and erasure coding to ensure scalability, while optimizing footprint efficiency. Read more…
