A Study on Strategic Provisioning of Cloud Computing Services

Md Whaiduzzaman, Mohammad Nazmul Haque, Md Rejaul Karim Chowdhury, Abdullah Gani
2014 The Scientific World Journal  
Hence, continuous service provisioning that satisfies the user requirements is a mandatory feature for the cloud user and vitally important in cloud computing service offerings.  ...  The evolution in the adoption of cloud computing is driven by clear and distinct promising features for both cloud users and cloud providers.  ...  Low level metrics to high level SLAs Emeakaroha et al. (2012) [80] SLA aware cloud considering by data structure SLA tree SLaaS, SLA tree SLA aware provisioning Bouchenak [81], Chi et al  ...

A Survey on Improving QoS in Service Level Agreement for Cloud Computing Environment

Afaf Edinat, Rizik M. H. Al-Sayyed, Amjad Hudaib
2021 International Journal of Interactive Mobile Technologies  
Several previously-proposed models used in the literature to improve the QoS in the SLA for cloud computing and to face many of the challenges in the SLA are reviewed in this paper.  ...  The relationship between CSPs and customers must be determined in a formal agreement, and to ensure how the QoS between them will be fulfilled, a clear Service Level Agreement (SLA) must be called for.  ...  This paper briefly surveyed and described various models, frameworks, and methods used for improving QoS in SLA in a cloud computing environment.  ...

2011 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
In a cloud computing environment, it is beneficial for the cloud service provider to offer differentiated services among different customers, who often have different cost profiles.  ...  Our main contributions are (1) to observe how CBS behaves under piecewise linear SLAs, which are very common in cloud computing systems, and (2) to efficiently leverage these observations and to reduce  ...  CONCLUSION We investigated a cost-based scheduling algorithm, CBS, which has superior performance in terms of SLA cost and therefore has great potentials in cloud computing.  ...

Design science research contribution to business intelligence in the cloud — A systematic literature review

Odette Sangupamba Mwilu, Isabelle Comyn-Wattiau, Nicolas Prat
2016 Future generations computer systems  
Business intelligence (BI) helps managers make informed decisions. In the age of big data, BI technology provides essential support for decision making.  ...  We use the two-dimensional framework both to map the current state of DSR regarding BI in the cloud, and to elicit future research avenues in terms of design science artifacts for BI in the cloud.  ...  We thank the reviewers for their helpful comments as well as MoBiD 2014 program committee members that have enabled us to improve our paper.  ...

SLA Template Filtering: A Faceted Approach

Katerina Stamou, Verena Kantere, Jean-Henry Morin
The paper proposes a filtering framework that is based on a faceted approach and that uses SLA templates to guide marketplace customers through available services.  ...  Service Level Agreements (SLAs) can be helpful to make the right investment decision. A SLA template represents the pre-agreed SLA state.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This work is supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), grant number 200021E-136316/1  ... 

Systematic Service Level Agreement (SLA) data management

Aikaterini Stamou, Jean-Henry Morin
The cloud computing model enables easy, on-demand, internet-based access to computing resources. Various definitions exist for the cloud computing paradigm [75] . The U.S.  ...  To address, however, the need for systematic SLA management in cloud markets, we first need to ensure that SLAs can be expressed meaningfully and processed efficiently in the cloud computing setting.  ...
