Abstract

great opportunities for consumers to find the best service and best pricing, which however raises new challenges on how to select the best service out of the huge pool. It is time-consuming for consumers to collect the necessary information and analyze all service providers to make the decision. This is also a highly demanding task from a computational-perspective, because the same computations may be conducted repeatedly by multiple consumers who have similar requirements. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a novel brokerage-based architecture in the Cloud, where the Cloud brokers is responsible for the service selection. In particular, we design a unique indexing technique for managing the information of a large number of Cloud service providers. We then develop efficient service selection algorithms that rank potential service providers and aggregate them if necessary. We prove the efficiency and effectiveness of our approach through an experimental study with the real and synthetic Cloud data.
