UB Theory Weekly – Week 4

Hi all,

The fourth Theory Weekly Meeting will happen this Friday between 4:00 – 5:00 pm at 203 Davis Hall(Theory Lab). The schedule will be as follows :

4:00 – 4:40 pm – A talk by Sai Vikneshwar(me :)). The plan for the talk is as follows –

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!
