In a cloud business model, consumers pay cloud providers for consumption of computing capabilities and the allocation of resources often requires consumers and providers to establish service contracts through negotiation. This paper reports the preliminary findings in devising a unifying strategy for supporting price negotiation among multiple consumers and multiple providers in cloud resource allocation. The contributions of this paper include comparing the negotiation functions of various existing negotiation strategies, implementing the various negotiation strategies in an agent-based testbed, and empirically comparing the performance of a family of multilateral negotiation strategies.
