The International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing, Applications and Technologies (PDCAT)
In this paper the authors presented a systematic mapping study providing an overview of existing paper on fault management in cloud computing. The authors selected 166 scientific papers published from 2008 to 2012. The classification of these scientific works helped them to identify how the scientific production is distributed over the years and to recognize what are the most used publication venues. They could also pinpoint well-explored topics and some gaps that may represent opportunities for further research on fault management in cloud computing.
