Abstract: Now-a-days cloud computing is growing exponentially and the preference to cloud services is increasing day by day due to their cost saving benefits. These services mostly seem to be significantly identical in their functionality except their key attributes like storage, computational power, price etc. Till now there is no uniform specification for defining a service in cloud domain. In order to specify the identical operations and publish the services on the websites, different cloud service providers tend to use completely different vocabulary. The process of requesting for a cloud service becomes merely challenging task. Hence, a reasoning mechanism is immensely essential for service discovery that could resolve the resemblance appearing across different services by inferring with the respective cloud ontology. In this paper, an effective mechanism has been proposed using ontology for most relevant cloud service discovery and selection using a distributed cloud application platform called Aneka PaaS.
Keywords: cloud computing; cloud service discovery and selection; quality of service; QoS; cloud ontology; Aneka; platform as a service; PaaS.
