Now-a-days the world is moving around the social networks, i.e. most of the people are interacting with each other via internet only. Transmitting data via the Internet is a routine and common task for users today. Transferring a gigabyte of data in an entire day was normal; however, users are now transmitting multiple gigabytes in a single hour. The big data is the combination of structured, semi-structured, unstructured, homogeneous and heterogeneous data. With the influx of big data and massive scientific data sets that are measured in tens of peta-bytes, a user has the propensity to transfer even larger amounts of data.
