Semantic description of cloud service agreements

Greenwell, Richard; Liu, Xiaodong; Chalmers, Kevin


Kevin Chalmers


To provide cloud services as a utility there must be
a mechanism for comprehensively and precisely specifying cloud
service agreements to reduce differences in service perception
between customers and suppliers.
This paper proposes a description logic driven approach to
specifying cloud service agreements as ontology, which allows
agreement and negotiation between the parties in the service
agreement. A unique contribution is provided by modelling of
cloud service agreements as ontology which is precise and
Future work sees the approach expanded to include a greater
number of cloud service agreement artifacts and a service
agreement specification for a financial calculation service.
