Load balancing in cloud computing: an analytical review and proposal

Santosh Kumar Maurya, Garima Sinha


Task scheduling or mapping of requests to machines with specified requirements becomes a very important problem to get optimized results. With the requests of many users, the machine can go under different conditions such as heavy load and minimum load. These various aspects can lead to system failure and loss of data. Hence the load must be balanced to beat the losses of the system. A load balancing concept described how different types of loads could be balanced with each machine. The load can be of memory, computation, and network. The paper mainly focuses on all kinds of load to provide a big view for load balancing in cloud computing. Along with a review of all load balancing techniques, the paper is also presenting a proposal to balance the load with decision theory. The proposed paper introduces the basic techniques and types for load balancing and their implications for innovation.
