Various applications haven been migrated from self-maintained infrastructure to the cloud for increased reliability. A common practice to increase the reliability of a cloud application is to deploy redundant instances. Unfortunately, such redundancy efforts can be undermined if the application's instances share common dependencies. In this talk, I will first present reCloud, a novel system that utilizes various pieces of available dependency information about the cloud infrastructure to efficiently find a reliable deployment plan for applications deployed within a single cloud. I will also present INDaaS, which works for applications deployed across cloud boundaries where different cloud providers are unwilling to share their structural information with each other.
