Explores mechanisms for storage-level management in OceanStore, a global-scale distributed storage utility infrastructure, designed to scale to billions of users and exabytes of data. OceanStore automatically recovers from server and network failures, incorporates new resources and adjusts to usage patterns. It provides its storage platform through adaptation, fault tolerance and repair. The only role of human administrators in the system is to physically attach or remove server hardware. Of course, an open question is how to scale a research prototype in such a way to demonstrate the basic thesis of this article - that OceanStore is self-maintaining. The allure of connecting millions or billions of components together is the hope that aggregate systems can provide scalability and predictable behavior under a wide variety of failures. The OceanStore architecture is a step towards this goal
