Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-503) Implement erasure coding as a layer on HDFS

Krishnaraj commented on HDFS-503:
---------------------------------

Is there any stable version of Hadoop erasure coding. Where can I download the source code
of it. I am not able to find it, in the hadoop trunk.

> The goal of this JIRA is to discuss how the cost of raw storage for a HDFS file system
can be reduced. Keeping three copies of the same data is very costly, especially when the
size of storage is huge. One idea is to reduce the replication factor and do erasure coding
of a set of blocks so that the over probability of failure of a block remains the same as
before.
> Many forms of error-correcting codes are available, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erasure_code.
Also, recent research from CMU has described DiskReduce https://opencirrus.org/system/files/Gibson-OpenCirrus-June9-09.ppt.
> My opinion is to discuss implementation strategies that are not part of base HDFS, but
is a layer on top of HDFS.
