Abstract: The clouds have changed the way services are delivered to the companies. The attractiveness of the clouds comes from the efficiency gains (cost, performance, availability, fault tolerance, ...) and agility of enterprise applications and services. The computer infrastructure is becoming a supply chain services. Existing systems of clouds do not support advanced mechanisms for the optimal trade applications across different clouds. To improve resource management in the cloud, we integrated the concept of auction club, which regroup a set of clients who want to process their tasks in this environment. The work presented in this paper proposes first the way to satisfy clubs in terms of quality of processing cloudlets (tasks) for each member of clubs, while minimising their cost, and their time of processing, and then to integrate the principle of auction clubs in simulator CloudSim.
