Error correction codes (ECC) are ubiquitously used in data storage to provide fault tolerance. Traditionally, redundancy and error tolerance capability are considered the key performance measures for ECC. In distributed storage, however, codes need to be developed for the new challenges brought by the networked nature of the system. In this talk, we present regenerating codes, a family of codes that are efficient for failure correction.  For systems with 2 redundant storage devices, the repair bandwidth can be reduced by 1/2 compared to traditional ECC.
