Fir educational institutions to enjoy cloud service, they must know the needful.
Cloud computing is one area that would help educators, researchers and students in collaborative studies. Instead of spending huge amounts of money on hardware, software etc, Institutions can engage a cloud service provider and use any of the service models on demand. Cloud computing will play a major role in educational institutions but the key issues for its successful implementation must be understood by both the provider and customers.
Abstract: The adoption of cloud computing transfers control of resources to Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). This gives rise to a variety of security and privacy issues. It has become incredibly complex for CCs to make distinction among similar kinds of services offered by different service providers. The proposed framework evaluates trustworthiness of service providers by evaluating compliance between monitored Quality of Service (QoS) parameters and QoS agreed in Service Level Agreement (SLA). The compliance values are processed using a technique known as analytical hierarchical process to obtain the trust of service providers. To validate the design objective of framework, i.e. the formation of trust by evaluating compliance of services, a case-;study-;based approach has been followed. The proposed framework can be employed in real cloud environment to establish trust which can help CCs in selecting the most trustworthy service providers in this relatively new distributed computing environment.
