This term is closely related to Service Level Management (SLM), which includes monitoring and managing the quality of services based on defined quality indicators (described in the Service Level Agreement) that are part of the organization`s core key indicators. This section describes the service objectives for incident management in tamigo. Další termín mající blízký vztah k SLA je service-level declaration, což je SLA tam, kde není pořádný protějšek na straně zákazníka. Může se tedy jednat například o přepravní řád MHD. The underlying advantage of cloud computing is that of shared resources that are supported by the underlying nature of a common infrastructure environment. Therefore, SLAs span the entire cloud and are offered by service providers as a service agreement and not a customer-based agreement. Measuring, monitoring, and reporting on cloud performance is based on the final UX or its ability to consume resources. The disadvantage of cloud computing compared to SLAs is the difficulty of determining the cause of service interruptions due to the complexity of the nature of the environment. FP7 IRMOS also looked at aspects of translating application-level SLAs into resource-based attributes to bridge the gap between customer expectations and cloud provider resource management mechanisms.   The European Commission presented a summary of the results of different research projects in the field of ASAs (from specifications to control, management and implementation).

As applications are moved from dedicated hardware to the cloud, they must achieve the same or even more demanding service levels as traditional installations. SLAs for cloud services focus on data center characteristics and more recently include network features (see carrier cloud) to support end-to-end SLAs.  Upsing time is also a common metric that is often used for data services such as shared hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers. Usual agreements include the percentage of network availability, operating time, number of planned maintenance windows, etc.
