There are a mass of researches on the issue of scheduling in cloud computing, most of them, however, are bout workflow and job scheduling. There are fewer researches on service flow scheduling. Here we propose a model of service flow scheduling with various quality of service (QoS) requirements in cloud computing firstly, then we adopt the use of an ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm to optimize service flow scheduling. In our model, we use default rate to describe the radio of cloud service provider breaking service level agreement (SLA), and also introduce an SLA monitoring module to monitor the running state of cloud services.
