Graphical Abstract:


Aims & Background: Cloud Computing (CC) has received great attention from the scholarly researchers and IT companies. CC is a standard that offers services through the Internet. The standard has been manipulated by existing skills (such as collect, peer-to-peer and grid computing) and currently accepted by approximately all major associations. Various associations like as Microsoft and Facebook have revealed momentous investments in CC and currently offer services with top levels of reliability. The well-organized and precise evaluation of cloud-based communication network is an essential step in assurance both the business constancy and the continuous open services.

Objectives & Methods: To select and rank the CC service providers, we introduce an Improved Score Function (ISF) based Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) approach. The proposed approach is developed to solve the MCDM problems with partly unknown weight. To do this, the criteria preferences are given in terms of Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets (IFSs). Numerical example is illustrated to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach over the previous ones.

Results: A decision making problem of cloud computing service provider has been considered for signifying the developed technique and finishes with the outcomes coincide with the already developed methods which confirms the solidity of the developed method.

Conclusion: For future, we plan to implement the proposed technique on various decision making problems, clustering and multi-objective problems. Also, we plan to extend our method under different uncertain atmosphere by using other MCDM methods.

Keywords: Cloud computing, intuitionistic fuzzy sets, MCDM, score function, multi-criteria decision-making, multi-objective problems.
