A computer-implemented method for distributed data deduplication may include (1) identifying a deduplicated data system, the deduplicated data system include a plurality of nodes, wherein each node within the plurality of nodes is configured to deduplicate data stored on the node, (2) identifying a data object to store within the deduplicated data system, (3) generating a similarity hash of the data object, the similarity hash representing a probabilistic dimension-reduction of the data object, (4) selecting, based at least in part on the similarity hash, a target node from the plurality nodes on which to store the data object, and then (5) routing the data object for storage on the target node based on the selection of the target node. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.
