Cloud federation is an aggregation of services from different providers in a single pool supporting interoperability and resource migration. In federation, Services are assigned to the consumer’s service access pool as per their specific functional and associated Quality level requirements. The said assignment is based on the advertised features of services. Sometimes, the selected provider fails to provide the committed service or, it fails to fulfill the expected QoS level. As a result, the consumer is being deprived of getting the services at required quality levels, in spite of subscribing and paying. Re-federation i.e. the inclusion of new services from different providers in the resource pool is a solution. This costly and time consuming re-federation process harms the overall harmony, reputation and performance of the existing federation. In this paper, the necessary strategies to make a federation autonomic is proposed. It helps federation to work in a self-adaptive manner by delaying the re-federation process through replacement and negotiation mechanisms. This allows the federation to keep a balanced state in case of failures. The proposed methods are simulated and the claims are substantiated by the preliminary experimental outcomes.
