Resilience is an essential property for critical networked environments such as utility networks (e.g. gas, water and electricity grids), industrial control systems, and communication networks. Due to the complexity of such networked environments achieving resilience is multi-dimensional since it involves a range of factors such as redundancy and connectivity of different system components as well as availability, security, dependability and fault tolerance. Hence, it is of importance to address resilience within a unified framework that considers such factors and further enables the practical composition of resilience mechanisms. In this paper we firstly introduce the concepts and principles of Multi-Level Resilience (MLR) and then demonstrate its applicability in a particular cloud-based scenario.
