Service Level Agreements : An Evaluation from a Business Application Perspective

  title={Service Level Agreements : An Evaluation from a Business Application Perspective},
  author={Paul Kar{\"a}nke and Stefan Kirn},
The vision of a worldwide computing grid evokes the scenario of electronic markets for grid services. For such a market, explicit formal statements of both obligations and guarantees regarding grid services in a business relationship are needed; these are referred to as service level agreements (SLAs). The objects of our investigation are current specifications and standards for SLAs. We address the problem that these approaches do not sufficiently fulfil requirements of business transactions… Expand

Using intelligent agents for service adaptation
The present paper describes a methodology to manage SLA adaptations combining existing techniques of software agents and the Semantic Web. Expand
SLAC: A Formal Service-Level-Agreement Language for Cloud Computing
This paper defines a language, named SLAC, devised for specifying SLA for the cloud computing domain, and illustrates potentialities and effectiveness of the SLAC language and its management framework by experimenting with an Open Nebula cloud system. Expand
Towards a Market-Centric OGSA-Compliant Architecture Model
This paper addresses the problem that the OGSA specification does not meet economic requirements of grid markets explicitly, because it has been designed for other, technical objectives. Expand

Message Protocols for Provisioning and Usage of Computing Services
This work presents a methodology for matchmaking consumer bids and provider offers and map the additional economic attributes into a SLA, and demonstrates the usage of the message protocols in an application scenario. Expand
A methodology for automated service level agreement compliance prediction
The Service level agreement Compliance Prediction (SlaCP) methodology is proposed as a general engineering methodology for predicting SLA compliance by mapping an existing SLA on a stochastic model of the service and using existing numerical solution algorithms or discrete event simulation to solve the model.

This paper describes a framework that we have developed to integrate proactive SLA negotiation with dynamic service discovery to provide cohesive runtime support for both these activities. TheExpand
A Semantic Contract Model and Knowledge-driven Process for Supporting Controllability in Service-oriented Approaches. (Un modèle sémantique de contrat et un processus basé sur la connaissance pour garantir la contrôlabilité dans les approches orientées services)
This thesis proposes that the service provision be governed by a service contract, which differs from traditional SLAs in several ways, extending the expressiveness of the SLA guarantees, traditionally based on security and performance, with contractual business terms representing the expected use of resources.
