A main challenge for service providers is managing service-level agreements (SLAs) with their customers while satisfying their business objectives, such as maximizing profits.

Specifically, this work proposes a framework that comprises multiple, configurable control loops and supports automatically adjusting service configurations and resource usage in order to maintain SLAs in the most cost-effective way. The framework targets services implemented on top of large-scale distributed infrastructures, such as clouds. Experimental results demonstrate its effectiveness in maintaining SLAs while reducing provider
