Cost of maintenance for cloud providers and cost of cloud usage for its users need to be kept under check. Cloud market promises as a possible means to deliver this price constraint by offering flexible pricing policies, some pricing models favoring short-term users’ requirements, whereas others facilitating long-term requirements. Thus, finding an optimal solution is a challenging proposition. In this paper, an attempt has been made to minimize the service cost for users as well as cloud providers’ provisioning cost. We proposed a cooperative resource provisioning algorithm assuming that the cloud providers cooperate among themselves by sharing service demand data from time to time and simulated the cooperative market scenario. Widely accepted demand data and pricing policies have been employed in our simulations. Simulation results show that our proposed algorithm minimizes both types of costs in comparison to non-cooperative counterparts.
