Performance of cloud computing depends on effective utilization of resources and reliability. With resource allocation algorithms such as banker's algorithm resource utilization can be done in an effective manner in cloud computing. With reliability, the authors can estimate the fault tolerance capability of a system. Reliability improvement is largely dependent on the availability of operational profile that statistically models the pattern in which the system is more likely to be used in the operating environment. System is less reliable if it exhibits a degree of hardware and software dependency and more reliable if hardware and software failure occur independently.
