Abstract. Security [11] and quality [4] of cloud computing services represent significant factors that affect the adoption by consumers. Platform as a Service (PaaS) is one of cloud computing service models [14]. Management of database systems, middleware and application runtime environments is automated in PaaS [2]. PaaS automation management issues and requirements were collected in three rounds from information technology experts using Delphi technique. In this paper, PaaS automation quality and security management system is proposed and evaluated. Evaluation of the management system was based on experiment in a private cloud for an organization undergoing a transformation toward PaaS computing.
