Modeling a Dynamic Data Replication Strategy to Increase System
Availability in Cloud Computing Environments
Abstract— Modeling a Dynamic Data Replication Strategy to Increase System Availability in Cloud Computing Environments. Failures are normal rather than exceptional in the cloud computing environments. < Final Year Projects 2016 > To improve system availability, replicating the popular data to multiple suitable locations is an advisable choice, as users can access the data from a nearby site. This is, however, not the case for replicas which must have a fixed number of copies on several locations. How to decide a reasonable number and right locations for replicas has become a challenge in the cloud computing. A dynamic data replication strategy is put forward with a brief survey of replication strategy suitable for distributed computing environments.
