Cloud computing is an emerging domain that is capturing global users from all walks of life—the corporate sector, government sector, and social arena as well. Various cloud providers have offered multiple services and facilities to this audience and the number of providers is increasing very swiftly. This enormous pace is generating the requirement of a comprehensive ecosystem that shall provide a seamless and customized user environment not only to enhance the user experience but also to improve security, availability, accessibility, and latency. Emerging technology is providing robust solutions to many of our problems, the cloud platform is one of them. It is worth mentioning that these solutions are also amplifying the complexity and need of sustenance of these rapid solutions. As with cloud computing, new entrants as cloud service providers, resellers, tech-support, hardware manufacturers, and software developers appear on a daily basis. These actors playing their role in the growth and sustenance of the cloud ecosystem. Our objective is to use convergence for cloud services, software-defined networks, network function virtualization for infrastructure, cognition for pattern development, and knowledge repository. In order to gear up these processes, machine learning to induce intelligence to maintain ecosystem growth, to monitor performance, and to become able to make decisions for the sustenance of the ecosystem. Workloads may be programmed to “superficially” imitate most business applications and create large numbers using lightweight workload generators that merely stress the storage. In today's current IT environment, when many enterprises use the cloud to service some of their application demands, a different performance testing technique that assesses more than the storage is necessary. Compute and storage are merged into a single building block with HCI(Hyper-converged infrastructure), resulting in a huge pool of compute and storage resources when clustered with other building blocks. The novelty of this work to design and test cloud storage using the measurement of availability, downtime, and outage parameters. Results showed that the storage reliability in a hyper-converged system is above 92%.
