Cloud computing is a rapidly growing technology, which attracts users for its various advantages such as scalability, efficiency and low cost. In Cloud computing, where storage is provided as a service, efficient metadata management is a critical issue. In a cloud storage system, huge amount of data should be stored and retrieved with minimal latencies and with negligible performance degradation. Managing metadata efficiently decreases the latency of data retrieval process. There are a large number of metadata management schemes. The techniques used in this paper for an efficient metadata management scheme are D-Cache technique and IChord implementation.
