In this work we introduces a new family of redundancy schemes called replicated erasure codes (REC), which combine the storage-space eciency of erasure codes and the repair-trac eciency of replication. A formal model for analyzing the storage and repair-trac costs under availability and persistency constraints is also developed. It is shown that under parameters that characterize common P2P environments, REC generally achieves better results than each of the two methods separately.
