This paper focuses on the request assignment problem in distributed storage system with the limited resources which is a challenging issue. The pertinent constraints and variants to be considered for devising a solution are identified. Assignment of requests to the storage servers should be continuously monitored with the existing data and should be reconfigured when there is a change in the parameters that are observed. Thus assignment of users’ requests – monitoring – reconfiguring of the data periodically gives the nature of agility for the storage servers. The study compares the performance of a few strategies that includes the constraints and variants fitting for cloud based architectures.
