LDGM Codes for Storage Systems

Networked storage-systems and communication systems typically use codes to protect data from failures. As reliability settings in these two types of systems are different, codes developed for storage systems can out-perform communication codes applied to storage systems. In this work we show such codes, as well as their applications.
