Table 2 Experimental configuration

From: Maximizing the profits of cloud service providers via dynamic virtual resource renting approach

Type Parameter Value
Service requesting layer Number 10,000
  Arrive rate Poisson task at the rate of 80 per I λ Measured by small instance, the size is uniformly distributed
  Task size between 100 I λ to 300 I λ , that is 60 I λ to 160 I λ when measured by extra large instance
Service providing layer Rental approach RS, RL, RXL, RR, FFP, DRAP
Virtual resource supplying layer Virtual machine Small instance, large instance, xlarge instance with the same configuration as Amazon small, large, xlarge spot instance
   Dataset 1: spot prices of Amazon small, large, xlarge instance from June 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011 in eastern United States.
  Price The OS is Windows
   Dataset 2: normally distributed prices. The mean and variance is equal to Dataset 1
SLA r pay $ 0.078 per unit size
  φ 0.8
  ϕ 1.1
  r penlty 0
Parameter of weak equilibrium operator δ 0.9 and 0.8, respectively, for dataset1 and dataset2
  ε 0.01 and 0.05, respectively, for dataset1 and dataset2
