Abstract: To handle the large amount of incoming data, cloud computing has emerged as a very efficient technology. Cloud computing makes use of strategies that involve the use of an on-demand service of providing multiple virtual servers. As cloud computing serves many techniques for handling big data, a need arises to detect the faults that occur and to manage those faults in such a way as to keep the fault tolerant measures, abstract from the user. Here we are going to provide various fault tolerance techniques by making use of a service layer. The responsibility that is given to the service layer will be to detect the faults that occur at the server and to accurately find a solution keeping the internal details hidden from the user.
