If we take a look at current cloud computing services, the only quality guarantee they provide are vague Service Level Agreements(SLA). In this paper we modelled some non-functional aspects in an ontology and used this ontology as a knowledge base to generate an excerpt from a service contract. We concentrate in this excerpt on availability as it is one of the most discussed attributes in current Service Level Agreements.
