The compass of Cloud infrastructure services advances steadily leaving users in the agony of choice. To be able to select the best mix of service offering from an abundance of possibilities, users must consider complex dependencies and heterogeneous sets of criteria. Therefore, the authors present a PhD paper proposal on investigating an intelligent decision support system for selecting Cloud-based infrastructure services (e.g. storage, network, CPU). The outcomes of this will be decision support tools and techniques, which will automate and map users' specified application requirements to Cloud service configurations.
