As far as internet connection brings people together to share idea and communicate through it, it continually invites service providers to share their resources with desired organizations in order to improve their business operations. Storage system used to store most of the organization’s data needs to be accessed frequently. Thus, storage has become a vital part of an organization and needs to be available almost anytime. In order to maximize reliability and the availability of their data, many of organization converts their storage into a cloud storage platform. To set up a cloud server, a lot of consideration is needed. One of the main considerations is cost. Setting up a cloud storage without proper strategies will involve very high cost in future. In order to make sure the cloud storage server operates at maximum reliability in a certain amount of time, a high budget for servers is required. High server cost is required in order to obtain maximum reliability. Thus, setting up target duration will help organizations to control the cost without having to compromise the storage reliability. This research will focus on finding maximum server reliability based on target duration and cost constraint. In this thesis, maximum reliability is defined by using two main objectives which are budget and duration. The multi objective optimization technique is used in order to find the optimum point from the constraint. The optimal result will be the minimum number of servers required to achieve maximum reliability according to target duration.
