Abstract

Maximizing resource provider profit and satisfying user requirements at the same time is a challenging problem in utility computing environments. In this paper, we introduce adaptive resource allocation requests and investigate the impact of using them in utility cluster computing environments. The Service Level Agreements established between users and resource providers rely not only on fixed values, but also on functions that associate allocation parameters. In addition, the resource provider scheduler can automatically modify the number of resources and usage time of allocation requests, as well as split them into subrequests. Users may receive incentives for supplying flexible requests w..
