Compared with the traditional computing models such as grid computing and cluster computing, a key advantage of Cloud computing is that it provides a practical business model for customers to use remote resources. However, it is challenging for Cloud providers to allocate the pooled computing resources dynamically among the differentiated customers so as to maximize their revenue. It is not an easy task to transform the customer-oriented service metrics into operating level metrics, and control the Cloud resources adaptively based on Service Level Agreement (SLA). This paper addresses the problem of maximizing the provider's revenue through SLA-based dynamic resource allocation as SLA plays a vital role in Cloud computing to bridge service providers and customers. We formalize the resource allocation problem using Queuing Theory and propose optimal solutions for the problem considering various Quality of Service (QoS) parameters such as pricing mechanisms, arrival rates, service rates and available resources. The experimental results, both with the synthetic dataset and with traced dadataset, show that our algorithms outperform related work.
