With the increasing availability of various types of cloud services many organizations are becoming reliant on providers of cloud services to maintain the operation of their enterprise applications. Different types of reliability strategies designed to improve the availability of cloud services have been proposed and implemented. In this paper we have estimated the theoretical improvements in service availability that can be achieved using the Retry Fault Tolerance, Recovery Block Fault

The experimental results obtained using our prototype Service Consumer Framework are consistent with the theoretical predictions, and indicate significant improvements in service availability when compared to invoking cloud services directly.
