With mission-critical web applications and resources being hosted on cloud environments, and cloud services growing fast, the need for having a greater level of service assurance regarding fault tolerance for availability and reliability has increased. The high priority now is ensuring a fault-tolerant environment that can keep the systems up and running. To minimize the impact of downtime or accessibility failure due to systems, network devices, or hardware, the expectations are that such failures must be anticipated and handled proactively, quickly and intelligently. This chapter discusses the fault tolerance system for cloud computing environments and analyzes whether this is effective for Cloud environments.

Keywords: Fault Tolerance, Replication, Redundancy, High Availability.
