Abstract: The cloud has to commit with service level agreements (SLA) which ensures a specific level of performance and sets a penalty if SLA is violated by the provider. These days, managing and applying penalties have become an essential and critical issue for cloud computing. In this research, adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is used to develop proactive fault prediction model which has been designed by utilising the power of machine learning and tested on the datasets to highlight the accurate models for faults prediction in the cloud environment. The suggested algorithm has achieved a percentage accuracy of 99.3% in detecting violations. The performance of the proposed model has been compared with Bayesian regularisation and scaled conjugate gradient methods which reflect the facts as obtained from the results that effectiveness of this scheme in terms of predicting system's violation is more effective.
