This Paper actually focuses on an efficient approach to enable failover in OpenStack an Open Source Cloud operating system that plays an important role in business continuity and Disaster Recovery. We have setup a simulated environment wherein Single node OpenStack Deployment has been installed on two different hypervisors and Efficient Scripting has been done in the Compute node i. e. Nova as it takes control of the Hypervisors Controlling the OpenStack installed on top of the Host machines. We have demonstrated the Failover in the OpenStack. The goal of this work is to create a framework that will enable protecting applications and services (VMs, images, volumes, etc) from disaster. Determining and selecting what application and services to protect is the responsibility of the user, while handling the logistics of protecting is up to the cloud (and its operator).
