Comparison of models for the selection of cloud computing resources

Hugo R. Hauech, David L. La Red Martinez


Due to technological advances, organizations have to face many challenges to provide support through the use of Information Technology (IT) to carry out tasks that require computer skills. This may require the use of programs, data storage, development tools or IT capabilities, therefore it is important to adopt adequate resources for the tasks to be perform and thus meet required needs. It follows that the selection of resources and suppliers is a topic of interest and that it is closely related to the selection models, where those of mathematical-based development present results with greater consistency and offer the possibility of establishing an order. This article presents the characteristics of Cloud Computing (CC) and the technologies that allow its implementation; the hierarchical analytical process as a solution for multi-criteria decision making, where peer comparison and weighting lay the foundations of its development; and a class of aggregation operators that allows the individual assessment of criteria and alternatives. In addition, the comparison of results that arise from the application for the selection of service providers, will allow to evaluate each model and obtain the appropriate one for situations where there is a wide range of possibilities.
