Technical Specification Sheets

SC3: Governance and Quality Control for Cloud Services:  Cloud service brokers seek to offer a heterogeneous mix of platform services and services developed by independent software vendors.  But how can brokers govern the lifecycle of differently-sourced services, in order to assure automatically that they conform both to broker policies and to service level agreements (SLAs) that reflect technical and business aspects of service delivery?

Verification and Testing Tools for Software Services:  Cloud service brokers seek to offer a competitive choice of differently-sourced versions of commonly-used software services to their consumers.  But how can they guarantee that services produced by third parties conform to standard models that allow platforms to integrate them seamlessly?  How can they gain confidence that the services do what they claim?

Failure Prevention and Recovery of Cloud Services:  Cloud service brokers seek to offer a guaranteed supply of differently-sourced, inter-operating software services to their consumers.  But how can they protect consumers against the risk of third party service failure, when these services are constantly being upgraded?  Can a broker prevent an impending service failure?  Can a broker recover after a failure has occurred? 

PuLSaR: a Preference-based cLoud Service Recommender:  Cloud service brokers seek to offer a competitive choice of differently-sourced cloud services to their consumers.  But how can consumers select the services that best suit their needs, when there is no standard mechanism for comparing service descriptions against user requirements?  How can consumers express or rank their preferences, when these are sometimes vague?
