During the past few years, large, reliable and efficient storage systems have become increasingly important in enterprise environments. Additional requirements for these environments include low installation, maintenance and administration costs. In this paper we propose a hash-based storage approach, combined with block-level operating system semantics. The experimental evaluation confirms that the proposed approach is viable and can offer a cost-effective storage solution.
