  • Publication number: 20140143367
    Abstract: A storage system that accomplishes both robustness and scalability. The storage system includes replicated region servers configured to handle computation involving blocks of data in a region. The storage system further includes storage nodes configured to store the blocks of data in the region, where each of the replicated region servers is associated with a particular storage node of the storage nodes. Each storage node is configured to validate that all of the replicated region servers are unanimous in updating the blocks of data in the region prior to updating the blocks of data in the region. In this manner, the storage system provides end-to-end correctness guarantees for read operations, strict ordering guarantees for write operations, and strong durability and availability guarantees despite a wide range of server failures (including memory corruptions, disk corruptions, etc.) and scales these guarantees to thousands of machines and tens of thousands of disks.

  • Publication number: 20020184403
    Abstract: Methods, systems and carrier media are disclosed for near optimal bandwidth-constrained placement of data objects at a collection of distributed caches. The methods may determine placement of data objects based on probability of access requests to those objects, size of the objects, available bandwidth, time available to fill the caches, and/or cost of acquiring copies of the objects from an origin server. Additionally, the methods may account for data objects that already exist in one or more of the caches. The methods may be configured to determine a one-time placement and/or a substantially continuous placement of data objects. Additionally, the methods may be configured to account for variations between the data objects, caches and/or origin servers.
