Economic Model Based Cloud Service Composition

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7221)


Cloud service composition is usually long-term based and driven by meeting the Cloud economic model. We use CP-Net to represent the long-term based economic model. We consider service composition as a Nash game to capture the behaviors of Cloud application providers and IaaS providers. Finally, we propose an economic model based service composition approach in Cloud computing.
