Data Center Storage Algorithm from MIT, Bell Labs, and Alcatel-Lucent Promises to Cut Electricity Use in Data Centers by 35 Percent for Streaming Services

Data Center Storage Algorithm from MIT, Bell Labs, and Alcatel-Lucent Promises to Cut Electricity Use in Data Centers by 35 Percent for Streaming Services | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Storing video and other files more intelligently reduces the demand on servers in a data center.
Pierre Levy's insight:

The new technology, called network coding, cuts way back on the redundancy without sacrificing the smooth experience. Algorithms transform the data that makes up a video into a series of mathematical functions that can, if needed, be solved not just for that piece of the video, but also for different parts. This provides a form of backup that doesn’t rely on keeping complete copies of the data. Software at the data center could simply encode the data as it is stored and decode it as consumers request it.
