Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-503) Implement erasure coding as a layer on HDFS
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2011 09:47:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-503?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13060450#comment-13060450

sri commented on HDFS-503:
--------------------------

I would like to know, if the stripes just act as a recovery option(when other datanodes have
failed), or can they act as input to the mapreduce jobs(to satisfy locality).

> 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.
