Distributed RAID A New Multiple Copy Algorithm [chapter]

2009 High Performance Mass Storage and Parallel I/O  
All previous multicopy algorithms require additional space for redundant information equal to the size of the object being replicated. This paper proposes a new multicopy algorithm with the potentially attractive property that much less space is required and equal performance is provided during normal operation. On the other hand, during failures the new algorithm offers lower performance than a conventional scheme. As such, this algorithm may be attractive in various multicopy environments as
