The DRAGON-Lab supports an opportunity for researchers to exchange Cloud resource on an open platform, but the exchange schemes have not been defined. This paper proposed two resource exchange models, market model and tender/contract model. A comparison testing are given and proven the proposed models are applicable for the DRAGON-Lab, and the market model evaluated have better performance than the tender/contract model. Both of them are justified as reasonable approaches which fulfilled the lacking of this research field.
