The rate of data growth is increasing rapidly. This requires an increase in overhead charges for hardware, data centers, and database management systems (DBMS). To overcome redundancy of similar data, technique of deduplication can be used.
Data deduplication is a method which ensures only one unique instance of data is present in the database. Deduplication has been widely used in cloud and big server systems to improve the storage utilization and effective usage of storage systems.
This paper focuses on image deduplication. The idea is, in a chat application not downloading images that are already present in the local storage.
