      Microsoft Trustworthy Computing (TwC) has collaborated with a number of cloud service teams across Microsoft to develop an approach for increasing cloud service resiliency by identifying and analyzing potential failures. This paper briefly frames the motivation and benefits of incorporating robust resilience design into the development cycle. It describes Resiliency Modeling and Analysis (RMA), a methodology for improving resiliency adapted from the industry-standard technique known as Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and provides guidance for implementation. The primary goal of this paper is to equip cloud service engineers with a detailed understanding of RMA, including the steps and templates used to complete the process, to enable easy and consistent adoption.
