Now-a-days, more services depend on Information Technology (IT) systems. Some of these services such as health care service and financial service are very crucial to the customers. Even a very small amount of data loss or a short downtime could lead to huge economic crisis or social issues. So most of the important business and public services use disaster recovery technique for protecting important data and reduce the downtime caused by catastrophic system errors. In this paper, we proposed an efficient replica management based disaster recover using Elephant Herding Optimization Algorithm (EHO).in this paper, initially, the data are uploaded into could with the help of EHO algorithm. Then, to avoid data loss, we create the replicas for each data. Finally, the request based data are back up and retrieved.
