Abstract

In Cloud market, there are several Cloud platform that can support Cloud application development, deployment, hosting and running. it requires developer to be familiar with each platform about its functionality, performance and type of service (ToS) for application development so that they can specifically develop and deploy the application for the platform. We provide a method and system for intelligently recommending the platform as a service (PaaS) offering from different providers according to the existing application’s architecture, functions, features and business requirements based on the built Cloud PaaS model and ToS model.
