In today's digitalized and globalized scenario, everyone has moved to cloud computing for storing their information on cloud storage to access their data from anywhere at any time. The most significant feature of cloud storage is its high availability and reliability then it has the capability of reducing management factors as well as incurred lower storage cost compared with some other storing methods, it is most suitable for a high volume of data storage. In order to meet the requirements of high availability and reliability, the system adopts a replication system concept. In replicating systems, the objects are replicated many times, with each copy residing in a different geographical location. Though it is beneficial to the users, it leads to some issues like security, integrity, consistency and hidden storage and maintenance cost, etc. Therefore, it is exposed to a few threats to the Cloud Storage System (CSS) user and the provider as well. So, this research seeks to explore the mechanisms to rectify the above-mentioned issues. Thus, the predecessor of the research work has proposed an algorithm named as 2-Replica Placing (2RP) algorithm which is used to reduce the storage cost, maintenance cost; and maintenance overheads as well as increase the available storage spaces for the providers by placing the data files on two locations based on Geo-Distance. But it fails to address the recovery mechanism when a natural disaster happens because providing reliability with less than 2 replicas is a challenging task for the providers. Thus, the research proposed Geo-distance based 2-Replica Maintaining (2RM) algorithm which is used to consider that issue for ensuring reliability forever even during natural disasters
