QoS Based Cloud Service Selection to Handle Large Volume of Concurrent Requests


Background/Objectives: With the exponential growth of cloud providers and users, the possibility of arrival of large number of concurrent requests within a small interval, may reduce the performance of broker. This paper presents a cloud service selection mechanism with service grouping. The main objective of this paper to show the performance difference between the selection mechanism with grouping and without grouping. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For the concurrent services groups and sub groups are created using functional and QoS parameters. Analytical hierarchy based selection algorithm is proposed. Performance of selection algorithm with grouping is evaluated. Performance of selection algorithm with grouping is compared with algorithm without grouping and the sufficient reduction in execution time is noted. Findings: AHP based selection algorithm with grouping improves the performance by reducing the computation time and reducing the repetitive repository access. Applications/Improvements: The limitation of AHP based algorithm is the rank reversal problem. The improved AHP based algorithm can be used to eliminate the rank reversal problem.
