Abstract: Cloud Computing has become an important aspect in today's world as technology has grown past all the boundaries and there is a need to connect resources and users without having physical connection. The high demand for data processing and leads to high computational requirement which is usually not available at the user's end Compression algorithms reduce the redundancy in data representation thus increasing effective data density. Data compression is a very useful technique that helps in reducing the size of text data and storing the same amount of data in relatively fewer bits resulting in reducing the data storage space, resource usage or transmission capacity.

Keywords: Compression algorithms, increasing effective data density, data storage space, resource usage or transmission capacity
