Profitable Valuation Model for Consumerism in Cloud Computing

P. Vignesh, S. Praveen Kumar, K. Elavarasi


In Cloud computing, clients would like to pay fair price for the resources while cloud service providers would like to make profit for their services. We would like to serve both the parties. We use concepts to make profitable valuation model which reduces the pricing of cloud resources. In this model, clients pay for the storage space in which they can post images for the ads. Cloud Service Providers reduce the price for storage based on several characteristics on a long term acquisition of storage space and the number of ad views or ad clicks by the users. [1]Clients make profit by the number of ad clicks by the users. With the increased number of clients, providers can make profit.
