Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7592)


Cloud computing needs end-user customisation and personalisation of multi-tenant cloud service offerings. Particularly, QoS and governance policy management and monitoring is needed. We propose a user-customisable policy definition solution that can be enforced in multitenant cloud offerings through automated instrumentation and monitoring. Service processes run by cloud and SaaS providers can be made policy-aware in a transparent way.
