Incorporating ubiquitous wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and powerful cloud computing (CC), Sensor-Cloud (SC) is attracting growing attention from both academia and industry. However, pricing for SC is barely explored. In this paper, filling this gap, five SC pricing models (i.e., SCPM1, SCPM2, SCPM3, SCPM4 and SCPM5) are proposed first. Particularly, they charge a SC user, based on 1) the lease period of the user; 2) the required working time of SC; 3) the SC resources utilized by the user; 4) the volume of sensory data obtained by the user; 5) the SC path that transmits sensory data from the WSN to the user, respectively. Further, analysis is also presented to study and demonstrate the performance of the proposed SCPMs. We believe that the pricing designs and analysis performed in this work could be a very valuable guidance for future researches regarding pricing in SC.
