Effective Disaster Management to Enhance the Cloud Stability

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 248)


Cloud computing is the state-of-art technology in IT industry. One of the majorcontributions of the Cloud is its capacity to handle enormous amount of data for either processing or storing. The most significant concern in Cloud is that it is prone to Disaster. A short period of downtime would result in significant financial loss. Therefore, it is essential for the cloud service providers to function with efficient data management and data recovery approach at the data centers which are one of the customer requirements. The existence and continuity of any technology depends on customer satisfaction. The satisfaction for any service or products can be achieved by applying the basic principles of Software Engineering. Customer satisfaction depends on parameters like business needs and the resultant Service Quality provided. This paper focuses on a survey of a novel approach for Disaster management through Efficient Scheduling mechanism and Efficient Load balancing technique to control Disaster thereby enhancing the Quality.
