Building highly reliable cloud applications is a challenging and critical research problem. FTCloud framework is introduced to solve this issue in cloud environment. FTCloud is a component ranking based framework for building fault-tolerant cloud applications. It consists of two algorithms. FTCloud1 uses component invocation structures and invocation frequencies for finding significant components. FTCloud2 fuses the system structure information as well as component characteristics to identify the significant components in a cloud application. This paper proposes VM Restart technique, an fault tolerant strategy based on cloud features which increases the reliability of cloud application.
