A Survey on Heuristic Approach for Task Scheduling in Cloud Computing

Neha Sharma, Dr. Sanjay Tyagi, Swati Atri


In cloud computing, data or resources are provided to the user by paying for the share of resources used by them. For efficient allocation of resources to the appropriate user, an efficient task scheduling algorithm is required, which can achieve minimum response time, high throughput and proper resource utilization, etc. Heuristic based algorithm is one such way to achieve the optimal or near optimal solution of task scheduling in the cloud environment. Heuristic methods are the subset of meta-heuristic approach. In this paper, various type of task scheduling algorithms in cloud computing have been surveyed.

Keywords: Cloud computing, heuristic algorithm, optimization, task scheduling.
