Fault tolerant systems are necessary to be there for distributed databases for data centers or distributed databases requires having fault tolerant system due to the higher data scales supported by current data centers. In a large distributed database usually data resides on servers which are dedicated servers having backups. Therefore, large amount of servers are used for this purpose. In this paper, it is proposed that instead internet can be used as backbone where Infrastructure-as-a-service (Iaas) service of cloud can be used for storage servers. The advantage of this will be that storage location is abstracted and database can be accessed from anywhere.
