Regenerating Codes For Distributed Storage.

Mary Wootters
Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Stanford University.

Co-sponsored with the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society
 

Abstract

In distributed storage systems, large amounts of data are distributed across many nodes, which are prone to failure. In this talk, I'll survey regenerating codes, which are a type of error correcting code designed to protect data in distributed systems from failures, while at the same time enabling extremely efficient repair of missing data. I'll give the basic framework of regenerating codes, and discuss some recent research aimed at establishing theoretical limitations regenerating codes from an algebraic perspective.
