Owl | Arushi Aggarwal & Jason Flinn

We will describe Owl, a new system for high-fanout distribution of large data objects to hosts in Meta’s private cloud. Owl distributes over 700 petabytes of data per day to millions of client processes. It has improved download speeds and cache hit rate by a factor of 2-3 BitTorrent and other prior systems used for distribution at Meta.
