Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise, or loss. The importance of data protection increases as the amount of data created and stored continues to grow at unprecedented rates. When looking at data protection, many factors need to be considered.
What is Erasure Coding?
Erasure coding is a form of encoding that works by splitting a unit of data, such as a file or object, into multiple fragments or data blocks. Then it creates additional fragments or parity blocks that can be used for data recovery. In the event of a failure, the parity fragments can be used to rebuild the data unit without experiencing data loss. Read more about Erasure Coding in this blog post by the Quobyte CTO.
