With the explosion of data such as text, audio, video, image, and the proliferation of the data centers, the regulatory back-up data is the pending issue to be resolved. In this paper, the authors propose a deduplication storage system exploiting byte index chunking approach to minimize storage space and network bandwidth. The key idea of this paper is to provide duplication checking mechanism based on byte index chunking scheme of fixed-length block algorithm. Their approach can minimize computation time for detecting duplicated region of blocks while decreasing processing time.
