Abstract: Cloud Computing’s service models have a number of proprietary pricing models as the services has been commoditized to some extent. The SaaS especially so far has been known with a flat price within the usage time. Pricing models need to be more flexible to prevent customers from thinking that paying same price for a service over a period is no more cost effective, in spite of the level of utilization of the service. For Cloud Computing this has to be taken into account. Africans have a business model with peculiarity. In order to expand the acceptability of Cloud Computing to the African market, this peculiarity must be accommodated. This study proposes cloud utility price models to give the Cloud customer the luxury of different usage style and determine a customer specific, individual, most suitable price model. It gives the customer the opportunity to choose a price model for the predicted usage and work within the budget.
