Any data that is stored in the storage nodes is representet in a storage entity. It contains all the metadata that is required by the system.

Field name Description
Key Identifier of the data record. It must be unique within the system
Ticks Timestamp of latest update operation (populated by client)
StoreCount Number of redundant versions submitted to storage (may be less, if some store operations fail). Populated by the master storage node (see HotShot Architecture for the description of store message processing)
StoreIndex Zero-based index of current redundant version (always less than the StoreCount). Populated initially by the master storage node, but may be recalculated when data migration occurs
Payload Data of stored entity
