Insights on Distributed Backup and Storage

18 May

Matteo Dell'Amico, Researcher, Eurecom, France

External Presentation (External Speaker)


While a considerable amount of research has been devoted to peer-to-peer backup and storage, no such system actually became widely adopted in the wild. My take on this is that there is the opportunity to build better, and possibly more successful, systems: while some design issues (e.g., erasure coding and data indexing) have been well explored, others have been barely scratched. In this talk, I will mainly cover my recent research on the distributed backup and storage topic, including efforts to investigate other design issues, such as peer-assisted storage, data transfer scheduling, redundancy management, data placement, and user uptime prediction.
