In the Distributed Management Task Force, DMTF, the management software in the Internet of things (IoT) should have five abilities including Fault Tolerance, Configuration, Accounting, Performance, and Security. Given the importance of IoT management and Fault Tolerance Capacity, this paper has introduced a new architecture of Fault Tolerance. The proposed hybrid architecture has used all of the reactive and proactive policies simultaneously in its structure. Another objective of the current paper was to develop a measurement indicator to measure the fault tolerance capacity in different architectures. The CloudSim simulator has been used to evaluate and compare the proposed architecture. In addition to CloudSim, another simulator was implemented that was based on the Pegasus-Workflow Management System (WMS) in order to validate the architecture that is proposed in this article. Finally, fuzzy inference systems were designed in a third step to model and evaluate the fault tolerance in various architectures. Based on the results, the positive effect of using various combined Reactive and Proactive policies in increasing the fault tolerance in the proposed architecture has been prominently evident and confirmed.
