Abstract: Today's business enterprise adapts cloud-based services as its architectural design. Intelligence technique incorporated into the architecture gives massive tangible and intangible benefits in terms of performance and reliability. Such cloud-based business architecture faces many threats towards its availability. DDoS attack is the most prominent threat as its impact is more in the virtual resource-based cloud infrastructure. Therefore, there is a need for a business intelligence-based framework to detect early the attack by monitoring the virtual network traffic. The proposed intelligence framework uses a deep learning framework, continuous discriminative-deep belief network (CD-DBN). CD-DBN dynamically captures attack patterns from the network data, analyses the data and detects the intrusion to the cloud. The observed result shows that the earlier detection approach guarantees the availability of cloud services to the legitimate users and enhances the cloud resource usage.
