<p><b>Abstract</b>—Random redundant data storage strategies have proven to be a good choice for efficient data storage in multimedia servers. These strategies lead to a retrieval problem in which it is decided for each requested data block which disk to use for its retrieval. In this paper, we give a complexity classification of retrieval problems for random redundant storage.</p>
