I will start with the problems that the modern distributed storage systems face and the existing techniques to solve them. Later, I will go on to introduce “Locally Repairable Codes” – which find a good balance between storage space and faster recovery. These codes saved hundreds of millions of dollars for Microsoft when employed in Windows Azure Storage.
4:40 – 5:00 pm – Socializing with the Theory community.
Hoping to see you all!
