About From traditional to auction-based cost models: a bidding scheduler for clouds


Description

Commercial cloud offerings, such as Amazon’s EC2, allow users bid for unused compute resources, changing the traditional flat cost model.

We have developed BaTS, a constraint-sensitive scheduler. This project aims to investigate how BaTS can be enhanced with an auction-based cost model, and to implement an auction-based version of BaTS.
