In this paper, we propose a QoCS and Cost Based Cloud Service Selection Framework based on fuzzy logicIt is a trustworthiness framework which helps in analyzing any cloud service in detail with multidimensional perspectives. It specifically analyze the trustworthiness of cloud service by using a set of parameters as Security, Finance, Maintainability, Reliability, and Usability. These parameters are collectively termed as quality of cloud service (QoCS) parameter. The framework is based on finance parameter as a major characteristic for selection of cloud service. Practical results show that the model improves the QoCS as well as assist the customer in making decision about the selection of cloud service based on their financial constraints from among the different cloud service providers for the same type of services.
