With increasing demand for high performance computing and data storage, distributed computing systems have attracted a lot of attention. Resource allocation is one of the most important challenges in the distributed systems specially when the clients have some Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and the total profit in the system depends on how the system can meet these SLAs. In this paper, an SLA-based resource allocation problem for cloud computing is considered and a distributed solution to this problem is presented. The processing, data storage, and communication resources are considered as three dimensions in which optimizations are performed. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed heuristic algorithm is robust (produces high quality solutions independent of the initial solution provided) and produces solutions very close to the "optimum" (best solution found by Monte Carlo simulation).
