Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors design, develop, and simulate a cloud resources pricing model that satisfies two important constraints: the dynamic ability of the model to provide a high satisfaction guarantee measured as Quality of Service (QoS) - from users perspectives, profitability constraints - from the cloud service providers perspectives.

They then price the cloud resources using their model.
