The advent of high-performance technologies and the increase in volume of data used by organizations led to the need for migration from an internal structure to Cloud environment. The continuous development of tools, methods and techniques have expanded the understanding of the various functions, structures and processes related to Cloud Computing. However, the increase in computing power led to the development and use of more complex models, including this scope the complexity of Service Level Agreements (SLA). The need for understanding at a high level of SLAs established between customers and service providers in Cloud led to different studies on the definition and standardization of these agreements. Nowadays, cloud computing technologies are becoming more and more popular, especially with respect to data storage. However, the processes used to determine the Cloud Service Agreements do not consider the final customer’s needs, considering only the supply capacity of the service provider. For these reasons, the development of service agreements that meets the needs of customers should be designed in order to increase the usability of Cloud environments, and enabling the discovery of new areas of application in accordance with market demand. In this context, the use of ontologies that describes the information that composes each type of service, and thus enable an understanding of the agreements reached, is configured as an approach to be considered. Moreover, the generalization and abstraction of information that can be observed in different services allows a broader vision for managing SLAs. For these reasons, this thesis aims to find innovative methods for the composition of Service Level Agreements in Cloud Computing. In particular, the methods presented allow demonstrate the convergence of several consolidated techniques in research on Cloud SLA using a new approach that considers new demands on Cloud and allows control of the established agreements, in addition to effectively ensure the application of the concept of XaaS (everything as a service). The originality of the approach allows the registration, search, composition and control of services in Cloud using the same structure. The new approach presented in this thesis allows the understanding of the impact of the new services requested by customers, giving the provider the possibility of simulating the use of the necessary resources to meet the new services’ requests. From the presentation of a conceptual framework we can demonstrate the use of our approach through the examples of different situations presented in the real world and considering the new market possibilities.
