Abstract

Cloud Storage Service affords users with plentiful storage space and
provides users accessibility in synchronizing files across platform and devices from
anyplace. In today’s world, emerging technologies are relying on a large number of
data, hence data management and storage becomes a serious problem. Therefore
data deduplication significantly reduces the storage overhead particularly in cloud
environment. Deduplication mechanism applied on server-side and client-side. In this
paper, we discussed about various types and mechanisms of data deduplication,
importance of client-side deduplication and additionally comparative analysis of the
few among the different existing client-side deduplication schemes are done.
