Response Time, QoS, Performance, Cloud Computing.


The area of cloud computing has become popular from the last decade due to its enormous benefits such as lower cost, faster development and access to highly available resources. Apart from these core benefits some challenges are also associated with it such as QoS, security, trust and better resource management. These challenges are caused by the infrastructure services provided by various cloud vendors on need basis. Empirical studies on cloud computing report that existing quality of services solutions are not enough as well as there are still many gaps which need to be filled. Also, there is a dire need to develop appropriate frameworks to improve response time of the clouds. In this paper, we have made an attempt to fill this gap by proposing a framework that focuses on improving the response time factor of the QoS in the cloud environment such as reliability and scalability. We believe that if the response time are communicating effectively and have awareness of the nearest and best possible resource available then the remaining issues pertaining to QoS can be reduced to a greater extent.
