The goal should be to fairly integrate good practices and requirements that maintain service efficiency and avoid additional costs. SLAs are an important part of any subcontracting and technology provider contract. Beyond expectations for type and quality of service, ALS offers remedies if requirements are not met. Service elements include the specifics of the services provided (and what is excluded if in doubt), the conditions of availability of services, standards as well as slots for each level. B service (e.g., prime time and non-prime time) may have different levels of service, responsibilities of each party, escalating procedures and compromise costs/services. ALS is a contract that describes the responsibilities that the supplier and the customer accept. Your cloud provider must inform you of what you are responsible for when you enter into the contract. It could be his own section or be scattered throughout the agreement, but he has to tell you what is expected of you. Make sure you whisper about the entire ALS to find out what your provider is managing as a customer and what you need to do. FP7 IRMOS also examined aspects of translation of ALS terms at the application level into resource-based attributes to bridge the gap between customer expectations and cloud provider resource management mechanisms.
  The European Commission has presented a summary of the results of various ALS research projects (from specifications to monitoring, management and implementation).  I hope you can now agree that ALS is necessary for cloud service and will benefit both the consumer and the provider. In the long run, it will save both parties money and promote satisfaction not only for the parties directly involved, but especially for end-users. Let`s think about Trappler`s idea of why ALS is important to ensure the cloud meets the company`s requirements. SLAs often include many elements, from the definition of services to the termination of the contract.  In order to ensure rigorous compliance with ALS, these agreements are often designed with specific lines of demarcation and the parties concerned must meet regularly to create an open communication forum. Rewards and penalties that apply to the supplier are often set. Most ALS also leave room for regular (annual) revisions to make changes.  To survive in today`s world, one must be able to expect the unexpected, because there are always unexpected new challenges. The only way to address these challenges consistently is to create a strong initial regulatory framework and provide exceptions from the outset.
