Market economics can achieve optimal allocation of resource by the equilibrium theory, cloud resource provision mechanism based on market economics is studied. For increasing collective revenue further and improving the efficiency and fairness of resource allocation, a resource provision algorithm RPABG is proposed in bargaining market of cloud computing. RPABG builds the model with bargaining game and its objective is to find Nash bargaining solution (NBS). NBS is solved respectively in two different conditions by our proposed iteration algorithm. Simulation experimental results show that RPABG not only has a faster convergence speed, compared with our earlier work based on non-cooperative game, but can improve the overall utility of resource providers and realize Pareto efficiency, which can lead to an optimal allocation of cloud resource with fairness, rationality and equilibrium.
