As the world is progressing towards full adoption of the - WWW (World Wide Web), communication of data becomes more vital, especially when it must be achieved by making use of Restful web services. Restful web services enable the ease to transfer data between virtual machines on the cloud or the virtual machines hosted on-premises. The main idea of the project is to showcase that data replication is possible between Primary HOSTS and Secondary HOSTS, with the primary host responsible for sharing the data with other virtual machines, by making use of a REST API. Further, any changes made to the data resided in the primary host must be reflected in the secondary hosts. Concepts of virtualization, cloud computing and Rest API are used here in this paper to achieve the goal of this project.
