Load Balancing in Fault Tolerant Video Server
The Video-on-Demand (VoD) application is popular as the videos are delivered to the users at anytime and anywhere. The system load is increased due to simultaneous access of VoD system by many users. The proposed architecture discusses load balancing mechanism within a video server and to provide service to the users with small start-up delay. The Video storage is based on the probability of the users requesting for the video. Videos with higher request probability are stored and replicated to ensure guaranteed retrieval. Parity generation scheme is employed to provide reliability to non-popular videos. The system is also capable of handling disk failures transparently and thereby providing a reliable service to the user.
