Elastic distributed storage systems have been increasingly studied in recent years because power consumption has become a major problem in data centers. Much progress has been made in improving the agility of resizing small-A nd large-scale distributed storage systems. However, most of these studies focus on metadata based distributed storage systems. On the other hand, emerging consistent hashing based distributed storage systems are considered to allow better scalability and are highly attractive. We identify challenges in achieving elasticity in consistent hashing based distributed storage. These challenges cannot be easily solved by techniques used in current studies. In this paper, we propose an elastic consistent hashing based distributed storage to solve two problems. First, in order to allow a distributed storage to resize quickly, we modify the data placement algorithm using a primary server design and achieve an equal-work data layout. Second, we propose a selective data re-integration technique to reduce the performance impact when resizing a cluster. Our experimental and trace analysis results confirm that our proposed elastic consistent hashing works effectively and allows significantly better elasticity.
