ABSTRACT

Recently, as the quality of multimedia data gets higher, multimedia servers require larger storage capacity and higher I/O bandwidth. In these large scale multimedia servers, the load-unbalance problem among disks due to the difference in access frequencies to multimedia objects according to their popularities significantly affects the system performance. To address this problem, many data replication schemes have been proposed. In this paper, we propose a novel data migration/replication scheme to provide better storage efficiency and performance than the dynamic data replication scheme which is typical data replication scheme employed in multimedia servers. This scheme can reduce the additional storage space required for replication, which is a major defect of replication schemes, by decreasing the number of copies per object. The scheme can also increase the number of concurrent users by increasing the caching effect due to the reduced lengths of the intervals among requests for each object.
