Cloud computing and virtualization are current topics that imply not only the industry but also the university. As server virtualization is an essential software infrastructure in virtualized environment, virtualized servers availability in the cloud remains an open question and the subject of several research projects. Without a perfect solution for software aging, virtual servers and resources will be in risk and service reliability in cloud project will degrade. To counteract software aging a technique named rejuvenation has been proposed, in order to remove aging related failures and its effect from virtual machines. In this paper we present our research work which aims to expose the different concepts inherent in virtualization and data centers as well as the state of art of rejuvenation with a comparison between its different techniques
