A new method of winner determination for economic resource allocation in cloud computing systems

2016 Journal of Advances in Technology and Engineering Research  
Cloud computing systems are large-scale distributed systems, so that they focus more on large scale resource sharing, cooperation of several organizations and their use in new applications. One of the main challenges in this realm is resource allocation. There are many different ways of resource allocation in cloud computing. One of the common methods of resource allocation are economic methods. Among these methods, the auctionbased method has greater prominence compared with Fixed-Price

In this paper a new method has been presented to determine winner in double combinatorial auction-based resource allocation using Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA). The experimental results show that in our new proposed method, the number of winner users is higher than genetic algorithm. On the other hand, in proposed algorithm, the number of winner providers is higher in genetic algorithm.
