Abstract: Ontology is the key enabling power in realizing the full potential of service in cloud computing environment. It plays important roles in supporting the common tasks of resources cloud service or what we called as resoruce as a service (RaaS) which is being categories into several level components of services such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). In the context of cloud computing, ontological of services level agreement (SLA) has played an important features to enable sharing of resources of services between cloud service provider (CSP) and cloud service requester (CSR) in utilizing the RaaS. This application or utilization of SLA together with RaaS will be working based on their service of agreement as a contract which is involed both parties that to be decided towards benefitials impact of their business organization of the future. Therefore, there is a need of a model that focuses on ontological SLA which is related to RaaS that to become as a standard guidance to those who are involved in cloud computing enviroment. Furthermore, by describing all those features of categories of SLA or called as ontological of SLA, it will be covering of all aspects of services especially related to RaaS of the orgaization requirement, which is providing the efficient and effective of services or also called as quality of services (QoS) for community of practice (CoP) in a particular environment.
