With the rapid growth of cloud computing, many organizations such as Amazon, IBM and HP started to offer cloud services to various consumers . From the customer ’ s point of view , it is very difficult to choose w hich service is best one to use and what the criteria for their selection are. Determining the best cloud computing service for a specific application is a challenge and often determines the success of the underlying business of the service consumers. In some situations , due to the vast number of requests , the providers are not able to del iver the requested services within requested time. To avoid this scenario , advan ced reservation scheme is proposed which provides the guaranteed delivery of resources. Currently there is no standard framework for ranking service for the customers to select the appropriate provider to fit their application and the advanced reservation mechanism which provides the customers to access their services at a right time. A novel framework for ranking and advanced reservation of cloud services is proposed which is based on a set of cloud computing specific performance and a Quality of Service ( QoS) attributes. It provides an automatic best fit and a guaranteed delivery
