Poster Track 4: Data Handling Posters B / Break


LStore was developed to satisfy the ever-growing need for
cost-effective, fault-tolerant, distributed storage. By using erasure
coding for fault-tolerance, LStore has an
order of magnitude lower probability of data loss than traditional
3-replica storage while incurring 1/2 the storage overhead. LStore
was integrated with the Data Logistics Toolkit (DLT) to introduce
LStore to a wider audience. We describe our experiences with the
CMS experiment's multi-petabyte installation capable of
reaching sustained transfer rates of hundreds of gigabits per second.
