TITLE:
Efficient Byzantine-tolerant Erasure-coded Storage

ABSTRACT:
In this talk, I describe a decentralized consistency protocol for survivable storage that exploits local data versioning at each storage-node. The protocol efficiently provides strong consistency guarantees for reading and writing erasure-coded data in a Byzantine environment. Measurements of a prototype storage system based on the protocol demonstrate scalability in terms of the number of storage-node failures tolerated and excellent throughput.

BIO:
Jay is a 5th year Ph.D. student in the Parallel Data Laboratory. He is interested in storage systems, distributed systems, scalability of systems, and fault-tolerance.
