Abstract: Cloud computing has emerged as the new trend in the IT industry. However, in order for the adopters of this technology to be legally compliant with regard to the handling of personal data, a series of actions must be undertaken. In this paper, we present the legal requirements that exist inside the EU with regard to transnational data transfer and storage. Based on these legal requirements, we then used the WS-Agreement standard to create corresponding SLAs.

Cloud Computing is considered nowadays as the future of  ICT systems leveraging new methodologies for developing, providing and consuming services. Even though many people believe that  Cloud is just another buzzword for utility computing, this new computing paradigm is not only changing the design of modern computing platforms in technical level, but it also impels, from the market perspective, the creation of new value chains and business models.
