Abstract: The rapid development in information technology has rendered an increase in the data volume at a speed which is surprising. In recent times, cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) have become the hottest among the topics in the industry of information technology. There are many advantages to Cloud computing such as scalability, low price, and large scale and the primary technique of the IoTs like the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) have been applied to a large scale. In the recent times, the users of cloud storage have been increasing to a great extent and the reason behind this was the cloud storage system bringing down the issues in maintenance and also has a low amount of storage when compared to other methods. This system provides a high degree of reliability and availability where redundancy is introduced to the systems. In the replicated systems, objects get to be copied many times and every copy resides in a different location found in distributed computing. So, replication of data has been posing some threat to the cloud storage for users and also for the providers since it has been a major challenge providing efficient storage of data. So, the work has been analysing different strategies of replication of data and have pointed out several issues that are affected by this. For the purpose of this work, replication of data has been presented by employing the Cuckoo Search (CS) and the Greedy Search. The research is proceeding in a direction to reduce the replications without any adverse effect on the reliability and the availability of data.
