Tycoon Tycoon allocates computer resources in distributed clusters like PlanetLab, the Grid, or a Utility Data Center (UDC) using a market-based mechanism where user pay for their usage using a currency. Tycoon allocates the cluster more efficiently than time-sharing schemes, and allows users to change their allocation in seconds.
