Erasure Coding with Red Hat Gluster Storage
Erasure coding is an advanced data protection mechanism that reconstructs corrupted or lost data by using information about the data that’s stored elsewhere in the storage system. Erasure coding provides failure protection beyond just single/double component failure and consumes less space than replication. Red Hat Gluster Storage enables quicker self-healing of erasure-coded volumes to improve performance during repair operations.
