Abstract


Cloud computing is a radical technology which provides computing as-a-service instead of providing computing as a product. It provisions computing resources on demand by paying for fraction of time we are using them. Concept of cloud reduces overall cost and management efforts through efficient utilization of various resources. Cloud computing has developed too much but still it has various research challenges like security, reliability, availability, load balancing, power management and data traffic analysis etc. which need researchers immediate attention. Load balancing is one of the hot research areas nowadays. It is the process of uniformly distributing workload on geographically distributed data centers. Load balancing algorithms provide the mechanism of adjusting load according to the application and node capacity. This paper focuses on load balancing, dynamic and static load balancing algorithms and future work in this direction.

Keywords


Cloud computing, Dynamic algorithms, Load balancing, Static algorithms
