Every year our nation requires about 4 crore units of blood, out of which only a meager 5 Lakh units of blood are available. Often people are unaware of the need and also they do not have a proper facility to enquire about it. No other clinical laboratory has more paper work than the Blood bank. As the data increases it is very difficult to manage it and is very complex. The address this problem, in this paper we implement the blood bank management system on a cloud. This system ensures that every patient has access to an adequate quantity of blood in a centralized manner and helps to solve the issue of demand. Implementing this on a cloud addresses the problems and the system will be scalable, dynamic, highly efficient and elastic. We focus on Amazon EC2/S3 and propose a high performance multicast algorithm. This algorithm makes it possible to efficiently transfer large amounts of data stored in Amazon S3 to multiple Amazon EC2 nodes. The three salient features of our algorithms are (1) To construct a Bloodbank management System on clouds without network topology information, (2) To optimize the total throughput dynamically, and (3) To increase the donors details by letting nodes cooperate with each other.
