Abstract

In this paper we describe the development of a system that provides security provisioning and performance controls over content in a cloud environment. Using an approach grounded in Usage Management and Control theory we are able to successfully provision resources in multiple cloud systems. Providing increased security comes with a cost of reduced performance. Therefore a variable performance control model for different levels of security is proposed. This control model allocates Virtual Machines adaptively so that a desired performance measure lies between predefined upper and lower bounds as agreed in the Service Level Agreement.
