Erasure Encoding

« Back to Glossary Index

It is a fast and simple method for encoding data in a lossless format. In this method, the data is stored at multiple locations following its segmentation, expansion, and encoding with redundant information. It offers a storage environment that is completely devoid of failures. The idea behind this coding is very simple: data is not written to storage completely, rather it is broken into chunks with smaller sizes, which are then used to reconstruct the actual data if required.
