Abstract – Data network is the nervous system and the heart of digital information transferring, it’s hold all applications information such as data, voice and video and due to this issue reliability of the data network is the critical mission to keep our digital life and business running 24 by 7, protection the data network in term of availability in the past was relaying on hardware and resources duplication which suffer lack of efficiency in utilization and inability to deliver the reliability based on requirement of the last mile applications, cloud computing come into the place to introduce a new paradigm of utilizing resources and reducing the cost of ownership, it’s capable to offer Reliability as a Service (RaaS) when it’s integrated with the infrastructure layer, this integration is the key to achieve this goal where
Multi-protocol Label Switching MPLS is linking the applications with infrastructure layer, this paper present the collaboration studies of protection components and integration with cloud computing to present the solution to offer reliability to the applications.

Due to flexibility and scalability of IP network and demanding of high speed data switching and reliability of
Asynchronous Transfer Mode ATM, Multi-Protocol
Label Switch (MPLS)  has been invented, the concept of MLPS is to present new forwarding paradigm to integrate IP and
