We consider the problem of how to effectively locate resources in virtual computing systems, such as grid and cloud computing environments. In this paper, on the base of Kleinberg Small World model, aimed power-law characteristics, an efficient decentralized construction approach PLSWCP(Power-law oriented Small World Construction Protocol) is presented, which uses fairly small partial view instead of global knowledge of network, getting intelligent choices in complicated environments. Theoretical analysis and simulations show that PLSWCP is scalable, self-adaptable, and load-balanced, improving the efficiency of resource location. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
