One major issue of cloud computing is developing Service Level Agreement (SLA)-oriented cloud management system, because situations like resource failures may lead to the violation of SLA by the provider. Several research works has been carried out regarding cloud management system were the impact of SLA is not properly addressed in the perspective of resource failure. In order to achieve SLA in such circumstance, a novel-layered architecture of SLA-oriented Cloud Management System (SLAOCMS) is proposed for service provisioning and management which highlight the importance of various components and its impacts on the performance of SLA- based jobs. There are two components such as Task Scheduler and Load Balancer which are introduced in SLA Management Framework to achieve SLA during resource failure. So, an SLA Aware Task Scheduling Algorithm (SATSA) and SLA Aware Task Load Balancing Algorithm (SATLB) are proposed in the above components to improve the performance of SLAOCMS by successfully achieving the SLA’s of all the user jobs. The results of traditional and proposed algorithms are compared in the scenario of resource failure with respect to violations of SLA-based jobs. Moreover, SLA negotiation framework is introduced in application layer for supporting personalized service access through the negotiation between the service consumer and service provider.
