Service Level Agreements & its Impact on Cloud

Authors(3) :-Pranav Tank, Darshan Upadhyay, Kunal Khimani

With the growth of technology, there has been scalable increase in use of Cloud services in real world applications. Cloud becomes efficient as it works on Pay-as-you-use basis. So with increasing number of cloud service, Service Level Agreement between Service Provider (seller) and Service Consumer (customer) becomes more important which will guarantee service type and its quality. Not just withstanding the point of quality of service, SLA also works on monitoring the service and refining the parameters which can increase the level of service. The objective of this paper is to present comprehensive study about how SLA works in a cloud environment and how it can impact in real world applications.
