The essence of Cloud Computing is to provide services by network. As far as user are concerned, resources in the “Cloud” can be extended indefinitely at any time, acquired at any time, used on-demand, and pay-per-use. Combined with SOA and Multi-Agent technology, this paper propose a new Service-Oriented QOS-Assured cloud computing architecture which include physical device and virtual resource layer, cloud service provision layer, cloud service management and multi-agent layer to support QOS-Assured cloud service provision and request. At the same time, based on the proposed service-oriented cloud computing architecture, realization process of cloud service is simplified described.
