In cloud computing systems, a user request goes through several cloud service provider specific processing steps from the instant it is submitted until the service is completed. In this paper, we use service-oriented metrics to characterize the dependability of cloud computing systems in order to find the pitfalls and improve the service. We find that it is not possible to fully reflect the impact of a cloud-service's dependability behavior through traditional dependability metrics like… CONTINUE READING
