Strategies for storage of checkpointing data using non-dedicated repositories on Grid systems

Raphael Y. de Camargo, Renato Cerqueira, Fabio Kon
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international workshop on Middleware for grid computing - MGC '05  
We consider the tradeoff among computational overhead, storage overhead, and degree of fault-tolerance of these strategies.  ...  Instead, we want to use the shared Grid nodes to store application data in a distributed fashion.  ...  A distributed storage system must ensure scalability and fault-tolerance for the storage, management, and recovery of application data.  ...
