Software Library

Code On licensee Steinwurf has developed a commercial-grade
Random Linear Network Coding (RLNC) software library called Kodo.

Code On & Kodo

According to data released by Code On, RLNC performed 13% to 465% faster than the industry standard Reed-Solomon encoding in Storage Area Network (SAN) erasure application testing.

The Kodo library, using RLNC to encode and decode data on a SAN for error correction and fault tolerance, was compared to Intel’s Reed-Solomon library implementation, called ISA-L, and an open source library implementation called Jerasure. The Kodo/RLNC implementation ran consistently faster on identical SAN hardware.
