With the growth of Cloud Computing, more and more companies are offering different cloud services. From the customerís point of view, it is always difficult to decide whose services they should use, based on usersí requirements. Currently there is no software framework which can automatically index cloud providers based on their needs. In this work, we propose a framework and a mechanism, which measure the quality and prioritize Cloud services. Such framework can make significant impact and will create healthy competition among Cloud providers to satisfy their Service Level Agreement (SLA) and improve their Quality of Services (QoS).
