The widespread popularity of Cloud computing as a preferred platform for the deployment of web applications has resulted in an enormous number of applications moving to the cloud, and the huge success of cloud service providers. The data center storage management plays a vital role in cloud computing environments. Especially the PC cluster-based data storage is necessary to manage data on low cost storage servers in which storage space can be reduced. This system presents an efficient data storage approach to work out many nodes in a cluster using Cloud-based Distributed File System (CDFS) compatible file system with variable chunk size to facilitate massive data processing. This system introduces the implementation enhancement on MapReduce to improve the system throughput and the scalability to keep on working with the amount of existing physical storage capacity when the number of users and files increase. Then CDFS also reduces the storage space in the storage server using Huffman Compression.
