In the global scenario one of the important goals for sustainable development in industrial field is innovate new technology, and invest in building infrastructure. All the developed and developing countries focus on building resilient infrastructure and promote sustainable developments by fostering innovation. At this juncture the cloud computing has become an important information and communication technologies model influencing sustainable development of the industries in the developing countries. As part of the innovations happening in the industrial sector, a new concept termed as ‘smart manufacturing’ has emerged, which employs the benefits of emerging technologies like internet of things and cloud computing. Cloud services deliver an on-demand access to computing, storage, and infrastructural platforms for the industrial users through Internet. In the recent era of information technology the number of business and individual users of cloud services have been increased and larger volumes of data is being processed and stored in it. As a consequence, the data breaches in the cloud services are also increasing day by day. Due to various security vulnerabilities in the cloud architecture; as a result the cloud environment has become non-resilient. To restore the normal behavior of the cloud, detect the deviations, and achieve higher resilience, anomaly detection becomes essential. The deep learning architectures-based anomaly detection mechanisms uses various monitoring metrics characterize the normal behavior of cloud services and identify the abnormal events. This paper focuses on designing an intelligent deep learning based approach for detecting cloud anomalies in real time to make it more resilient. The deep learning models are trained using features extracted from the system level and network level performance metrics observed in the Transfer Control Protocol (TCP) traces of the simulation. The experimental results of the proposed approach demonstrate a superior performance in terms of higher detection rate and lower false alarm rate when compared to the Support Vector Machine (SVM).
