Time and Cost based Resource Provisioning Mechanism in Cloud Computing: A Review

Aishwarya Soni, Muzammil Hasan


Cloud Computing is novel technology which provides the computing resources to the users with on-demand access to the resources such as server, network domain and virtual machines. Computing resources offered to the user by Cloud Provider using Resource Provisioning Mechanism (RPM) in an optimal way of maximizing the benefits of all stake holders in cloud computing. RMP here refers to the techniques to provide the maximum utilization of resources in context to cloud provider and minimize the financial cost of services in context of user. So, it handles the issues and interest of both cloud provider and user. How to effectively implement RPM is a major concern in cloud computing environment. There are various types of PRM used now a day each having its own merits and demerits. Here in this paper we are trying to evaluate existing techniques on Cost based and Time based resource provisioning mechanism. We will study the pros and cons of all the popular mechanism proposed under these two categories and their performance on various Quality of Service (QoS).
