Effective Management of Resource Provisioning Cost in Cloud Computing
In this paper, cloud provides two provisioning plans for computing resources namely Reservation plan and On-demand plan. In reservation plan, cloud consumers have to pay in advance which makes it cheaper. Here a Robust Cloud Resource Provisioning (RCRP) algorithm is used in order to achieve the best advance reservation. Certain uncertainties like demand, price, resource utilization and consumers cost is considered in RCRP. RCRP is proposed to minimize the total provisioning cost by considering the uncertainty. In the proposed system the RCRP algorithm can be implemented at Agent side as opposed to implementation at cloud broker.
