The exponential growth of data necessitates an effective data storage scheme, which helps to effectively manage the large quantity of data. To accomplish this, Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) digital data storage process can be employed, which encodes and decodes binary data to and from synthesized strands of DNA. Vector quantization (VQ) is a commonly employed scheme for image compression and the optimal codebook generation is an effective process to reach maximum compression efficiency. This article introduces a new DNA Computing with Water Strider Algorithm based Vector Quantization (DNAC-WSAVQ) technique for Data Storage Systems. The proposed DNAC-WSAVQ technique enables encoding data using DNA computing and then compresses it for effective data storage. Besides, the DNAC-WSAVQ model initially performs DNA encoding on the input images to generate a binary encoded form. In addition, a Water Strider algorithm with Linde-Buzo-Gray (WSA-LBG) model is applied for the compression process and thereby storage area can be considerably minimized. In order to generate optimal codebook for LBG, the WSA is applied to it. The performance validation of the DNAC-WSAVQ model is carried out and the results are inspected under several measures. The comparative study highlighted the improved outcomes of the DNAC-WSAVQ model over the existing methods.
