Links of the day 23 - 12 - 2014

Today's links 23/12/2014: Erasure code library and #cloud #storage that use them ( #swift , #ceph ), warehouse scale computing and scheduling

  • Erasure code library : if you need a refresher on the subject [ erasure code for storage
  • Cloud storage using Erasure code: 
    • Swift : interesting that they chose AP over C ( CAP theorem ) and use liberasurecode 
    • Ceph : use jerasure, i wonder what are going to be the implication of the partial amputation of the project on CEPH performance 
  • Next Gen Erasure code : erasure code are mapped deterministicaly using a global namespace scheme eliminating the need for accessing metada repository hence speeding up 
  • A few control issues in warehouse-scale computing : John wilkes (Google) #cloud Control Workshop, London, UK December 2014 
  • Scheduling for Large Scale Systems : 9th Scheduling for Large Scale Systems Workshop - July 1-4, 2014 - Lyon, France
