Cloud computing is a new paradigm in which dynamically scalable virtualized computing resources are provided as a service over the Internet. However, since resources are limited, it is very important that cloud providers efficiently provide their resources. This paper presents a trust model for efficient reconfiguration and allocation of computing resources satisfying various user requests. The model collects and analyzes reliability based on historical information of servers in a Cloud data center. Then it prepares the best available resources for each service request in advance, providing the best resources to users. The authors also carried out experiments for reliability analysis with 4 data types, including an all data set, random data set, recent data set, and the data set within a standard deviation.
