The Storage Exchange (SX) is a new platform allowing storage to be treated as a tradeable resource. Organisations with varying storage requirements can use the SX platform to trade and exchange storage services. Organisations have the ability to federate their storage, be-it dedicated or scavenged and advertise it to a global storage market. In this paper we discuss the high level architecture employed by our platform and investigate a sealed Double Auction market model. We implement and experiment the following clearing algorithms: maximise surplus, optimise utilisation and an efficient combination of both.
