With the growing amount of data being used and stored, storage is challenged to keep up with the capacity demands. Modern storage systems have hence adopted various data reduction techniques, mainly the use of loss-less compression and deduplication techniques. In this talk I will introduce the basic techniques being used in the field and address the main challenges and solutions of deploying these techniques in the context of storage systems.
Dr. Danny Harnik is a researcher in the cloud storage group at IBM Reseach - Haifa. He holds a PhD from The Weizmann Institute of Science, and his main fields of research are storage systems, compression, security and cryptography. Danny also spent 1.5 years as a post-doc at the Technion.
