Reliability analysis of deduplicated and erasure-coded storage
Space efficiency and data reliability are two primary concerns for modern storage systems. Chunk-based deduplication, which breaks up data objects into single-instance chunks that can be shared across objects, is an effective method for saving storage space. However, deduplication affects data reliability because an object's constituent chunks are often spread across a large number of disks, potentially decreasing the object's reliability. Therefore, an important problem in deduplicated storage is how to achieve space efficiency yet maintain each object's original reliability. In this paper, we present initial results on the reliability analysis of HP-KVS, a deduplicated key-value store that allows each object to specify its own reliability level and that uses software erasure coding for data reliability. The combination of deduplication and erasure coding gives rise to several interesting research problems. We show how to compare the reliability of erasure codes with d...
