We propose a novel approach called Fair-Share Replication
(FSR) to balance the work load and storage resource usage of the replica
servers in data grid. The approach takes into account the number of requests
and the storage load on the candidate nodes before placing replicas in
the grid nodes. The data requests are serviced by the siblings as well
as the parent node. Experiment results show that FSR performs better than
Fast Spread replication technique with respect to effective storage utilization
in replication process.
