Hierarchical Storage Management in a Distributed VOD System
Fall 1996 (vol. 3 no. 3)
pp. 37-47

Storage management algorithms handle continuous media objects stored on video servers within a hierarchical distributed video-on-demand system. Media objects stored permanently on tertiary storage devices are moved to video servers when needed. Algorithms manage the distributed cache in the video servers and select a video server on which to place a requested object. The object-placement algorithm uses server load, network load, and service-wait times to optimize system performance.
