A number of challenges in implementing cloud technique related to further improving Web application performance and decreasing the cost. In order to achieve high profits, cloud-based web application providers must carefully balance cloud resources and dynamic workloads. However, this task is usually difficulty because of the complex nature of most web application. In this paper, we presented a predictive performance model to analyze such applications and to determine when and how much resource to allocate to each tier of an application. In addition, we proposed a new profit model to describe revenues specified by the Service Level Agreement (SLA) and costs generated by leased resources. Furthermore, we employed profit driven model to guide our resource management algorithms to maximize the profits earned to the service providers. We also designed and implemented a simulation experiment on CloudSim that adopts our proposed methodology. Experimental results indicated that our model faithfully captures the performance and resources are allocated properly in response to the changing workload, thus the goal of maximizing the profit has been achieved.
