Storage Optimization of Cloud Using Disjunctive Property of π

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 380)


The process of storing data with the help of digits obtained from constant expansion is an interesting one, which stores your data in the digits of a constant, instead of consuming hard drive space. The pattern for a file is looked up in the constant and identified by the index of this pattern into it along with its length. Hence, instead of storing actual data, only the meta-data, i.e., the index and length of a file are stored in the disk. The reverse process takes place while retrieving a file for reading with the help of file location stored in the meta-data. This is achieved by performing preprocessing of digits of the constant and doing pattern recognition in it.
