concept of cloud architecture and compares cloudcomputing with grid computingand aimed to pinpoint the challenges and issues of cloudcomputing and identified several challenges from the cloudcomputing adoption perspective. However, security and privacy issues present a strong barrier for users to adapt into cloudcomputing systems. Gajender Pal et al. (2014), provides a better understanding of the cloudcomputing and identifies important research issues in this burgeoning area of computer science. On demand or on pay per use of resource such as: network, storage and server these all facilities are provided by cloudcomputing through internet is called cloudcomputing. Although, cloudcomputing is facilitating the Information Technology industry, the research and development in this arena is yet to be satisfactory. GE Junwei and YUAN Yongsheng presents a genetic algorithm consider total task completion time, average task completion time and cost constraint. Compared with algorithm that only consider cost constraint (CGA) and adaptive algorithm that only consider total task completion time by the simulation experiment. Amit Agarwal and Saloni Jain (2014), presented a Generalized Priority algorithm for efficient execution of task and comparison with FCFS and Round Robin Scheduling. Algorithm should be tested in cloud Sim toolkit and result shows that it gives better performance compared to other traditional scheduling algorithm. Cloud is developing day by day and faces many challenges, one of them is scheduling. Scheduling refers to a set of policies to control the order of work to be performed by a computer system. A good scheduler adapts its scheduling strategy according to the changing environment and the type of task. Ekta Rani and Harpreet Kaur (Ekta Rani, 2017), followeda Raven Roosting Optimization Algorithm (RRO) is followed to light on the load balancing for task scheduling problems solution in cloud environment. Heterogeneity of birds, insects enroll in roosting. In raven Roosting, Roosts are information centers or can say servers and scrounge feature of common ravens inspired to solve problems. This technique is good enough to handle number of overloaded tasks transfer on Virtual Machines (VMs) by determining the availability of VMs capacity. Raven Roosting Optimization (RRO) random allocation of VMs to Cloudlets results huge change in makespan with respect to VM to which allocated.
Scheduling in CloudComputing VM scheduling Apart from the end users, now a day’s all the corporate organizations also have started to migrate towards the cloud environment. This may be due to the flexibility they utilize incurring in a cloud environment in their workspace. The issue is each and every organization comes out with a different requirement of a cloud environment based on their work schedules. Virtual Machine technology is one of the main back bones of the cloud environment Workflow scheduling Workflow scheduling is the concept of managing the execution. The workflow scheduling is the process that maps and manages the inter-dependent tasks on distributive resources. Task scheduling Task scheduling mechanism is being used in the cloudscheduling that can service a particular task or a selected task at a selected period of time interval. The scheduling is being done on a cloud environment considering a set of events as a task and servicing them in a confined period of time using the resources provided. Scheduling conceptually varies from the task scheduling. Scheduling is done where all the events or the jobs are being queued sequentially in the queues usually defined as a task queue. A task queue is being processed based on some particular constraint. It may be of time or as a shift.
CPU scheduling has significant contribution in efficient utilization of computer resources and increases the system performance by switching the CPU among the various processes. However, it also introduces some problems such as starvation, large average waiting time, turnaround time and its practical implementation. Many CPU scheduling algorithms are given to resolve these problems but they are lacked in some ways. Most of the given algorithms tried to resolve one problem but lead to others. To remove these problems, we introduce an approach that uses hybrid approach for CPU scheduling in cloudcomputing environment. The hybrid approach uses Minimum Completion Time of various jobs with Opportunistic load balancing approach on cloud servers. Then we compare the proposed method with the existing approaches in terms of three metrics - throughput, maximum finishing time and the total execution cost. From various experiments we show that our approach works better than existing methods in terms of above metrics.
3) A Priority based Job Scheduling Algorithm in CloudComputing: Shamsollah Ghanbari, Mohamed Othman  presented a novel approach of job scheduling in cloudcomputing by using mathematical statistics. This algorithm considers the priority of jobs for scheduling and named as priority based job scheduling algorithm. It is based on multiple criteria decision making model. A pairwise comparison based on multiple criteria and multiple attributes method was first developed by Thomas Saaty  in 1980 and named as Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). Consistent Comparison Matrix is the foundation of AHP, so to use the concept of AHP comparison matrices are computed according to the attributes and criteria’s accessibilities. In this algorithm, each job requests a resource with determined priority. So comparison matrices of each jobs according to resources accessibilities is computed and also comparison matrix of resources is computed. For each of the comparison matrices priority vectors (vector of weights) are computed and finally a normal matrix of all jobs is computed named as Δ. Likewise, normal matrix of all resources is also computed and name of that matrix is γ. The next step of the algorithm is to compute Priority Vector of S (PVS), where S is set of jobs. PVS is calculated by multiplying matrix Δ with matrix γ. The final step of the algorithm is to choose the job with maximum calculated priority, so a suitable resource is allocated to that job. The list of jobs is updated and the scheduling process continues till all the jobs are scheduled to suitable resource. Experimental results indicate that the algorithm has reasonable complexity. Also there are several issues related to this algorithm such as complexity, consistency and finish time.
Cloudcomputing is new IT delivery model, which enables users to store and access data according to their need irrespective of time and place. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet. It will be the third revolution in the IT industry that models the development of software from hardware and services from software, and from centralized services to distributed services. Cloudcomputing is the latest technology that provides computational resources, storage and many more computing services on a pay per basis. Cloudcomputing provides all services on the basis of virtualization in which cloud provider provides virtual machine to the user on his demand . In scheduling a big task is divided in sub tasks and resources are allocated to each of the subtask to be executed successfully in a well scheduled manner. Resources are allocated in best way to achieve some decided objective. Every workflow has a parent child relationship, in which each task is treated as a node and every edge represents the relationship between each node. Based on the task relationship with each other, the tasks can be categorized as dependent and independent tasks. The tasks which do not depend on each other are called independent tasks and can be executed in isolation on available resources and there is no need to check any precedence order. The dependent tasks are different from independent tasks since there is a parent- child relationship between tasks, we cannot provide resources to the child before completion of its parent task. The main objective in workflow scheduling is to minimize the make span and maximize the utilization of resources where makespan is the latest finish time of the last task in the workflow. Thus, the task dependency plays an essential role in deciding the appropriate scheduling strategy.
Task scheduling is one of the most famous problems in cloudcomputing so; there is always a chance of modification of previously completed work in this particular field. The researchers at their own time performed their work according to their knowledge space and after some time their work had been carried out some other people. During scheduling they had considered various techniques and applied constraints but as the cloudcomputing is too vast that they had not been able to capture all aspects at the same time but they mentioned these facts that there is a chance of modification of algorithms and which part has to be modified.

Temporal Task Scheduling For Profit Maximization In Hybrid Clouds : As cloudcomputing is becoming increasingly popular, consumers’ tasks around the world arrive in cloud data centers. Scheduling tasks while assuring the service delay bound of delay-tolerant tasks. A challenging problem is the aperiodicity of arrival tasks and how to dynamically schedule all arrival tasks given the fact that the capacity of a private cloud provider is limited. In Previous works, an admission control to intelligently refuse some of arrival tasks. Although, this will reduce the throughput of a private cloud, and affect revenue loss. The problem of how to increase the profit of a private cloud in hybrid clouds while assuring the service delay bound of delay-tolerant tasks. So a profit maximization algorithm(PMA) to find out the temporal variation of prices in hybrid clouds. The temporal task scheduling contributes by PMA can automatically schedule all arrival tasks to execute in private and public clouds. The sub problem in each iteration of the profit maximization algorithm (PMA) clarified by the proposed hybrid heuristic optimization algorithm, parallel annealing particle swarm optimization (SAPSO). Finally, the proposed method can greatly increase the throughput and the profit of a private cloud and energy aware scheduling comprise of five sub algorithm. Initially, the virtual machine selection algorithm is used to implement cost utility idea to direct task to their correct virtual machines (VM) types. Next, two tasks are merged by using merging methods to minimize cost of execution and energy consumption. In last task slack algorithm is used to save the energy by DVFS techniques. In other word, sequence tasks merging, parallel tasks merging and VM reuse algorithms will minimize the economic cost of workflow is energetic. In addition, sequence tasks merging, the parallel tasks merging,
Abstract: - Cloudcomputing has gained a lot of attention to be used as a computing model for a variety of application domains. Task scheduling is the fundamental issue in this environment. To utilize cloud efficiently, a good task scheduling algorithm is needed to assign tasks to resources in cloud. Cloud task can be divided into two categories such as on-line mode service and the batch mode service. In this paper, online cloud task scheduling based on virtual machine adaptive fault tolerance and load balancing using ant colony algorithm is proposed. The main contribution of this work is that load balancing factor is added and the system tolerates the faults by tacking the decision on the basis of reliability of the virtual machines in scheduling process. The proposed scheduling strategy was simulated using the Cloudsim toolkit package. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieved the better load balance than Join-shortest-queue (JSQ) and Modified Ant Colony Optimization (MACO) algorithms.
of a task This scheduling enhances the execution of the system and makes traverse of all the tasks. It has better load balance of nodes. A Community Cloud Oriented Workflow System Framework and its Scheduling Strategy can bolster the quick cooperation component with high productivity. Aggregated– DAG scheduling for work stream augmentation in Heterogeneous CloudComputing algorithm minimizes make traverse, by conglomerating numerous occupations utilizing good scheduling, and a close ideal throughput can be accomplished. Tending to Resource Management in Grids through Network Aware Meta Scheduling. In Advance algorithm lets the system make rescheduling of undertakings already scheduled similarly as a BoT. To do that, the jobs are rescheduled by its begin time rather than by its arrival time. Consequently, the reallocation of those tasks will make less discontinuity into assets. In light of the above examination it can be inferred that influence traverse to can be diminished by gathering the assignments. Since cloudcomputing systems have a high level of capriciousness as for asset accessibility in future as the cloud size increases, there is a requirement for better scheduling algorithms.
One of the most important indexes of using cloud services in that this technology is far from the user. In cloudcomputing systems, computing resources are presented as virtual machines. In such a scenario, scheduling algorithm plays a very important role because the purpose of scheduling is tasks efficiency so that time is reduced, and resources utilization can be improved. A user may use hundreds of computing resources in a cloud environment, so it is not possible to perform scheduling manually. This can be done by using classic algorithms whose results have been studied and compared with our proposed algorithm, genetic algorithm. Selecting an appropriate and efficient algorithm for resources scheduling is required due to dynamic feature of resources and various requests of users in cloud technology to increase efficiency. In this research, our purpose is to perform and obtain an optimal scheduling by using genetic algorithm to reach the main purpose of finding an optimum scheduling to execute tasks graph in a multi-processor structure so that total execution time or ending time of the last work unit is minimized.
There are many parameters based on which algorithms have been proposed. These parameters if considered improve the utilization of cloud resources. Scheduling in case of mobile cloudcomputing is well researched. Task scheduler model  for mobile cloudcomputing is one of the algorithm that focused on reducing energy consumption and monetary cost in case of deployment in public cloud and energy consumption parameter in case of deploying in private cloud. Most algorithms consider CPU and memory as important resource; the proposed heuristic approach  takes bandwidth to load tasks to resources as constraint. Here each task is processed before actual allocation. The algorithm effectively utilizes memory, bandwidth and CPU when compared with the existing algorithms and gives 50% less response time. . For scheduling in heterogeneous cloud environment, a map reduce scheduling algorithm  was proposed that considered job deadline unlike other map reduce
Today’s age is the age of technology. Technology is growing at a totally speedy charge, every and the whole lot is getting connected. Cloudcomputing has attracted a whole lot interest these days from each enterprise and academia. However, the size and surprisingly dynamic nature of cloud utility imposes enormous new demanding situations to useful resource management. Thus, efficient aid scheduling schemes is still a task. As a new computing version, cloudcomputing has converted the IT industry with its developing utility and popularization. Though cloudcomputing gives considerable opportunities, those are many undertaking faces in its improvement process. This research, introduces Task Scheduling strategies and Load Balancing techniques to improve the cloud assets. With the immense growing business areas, distributed computing has all the earmarks of being the main alternative to meet their extending needs. A cloud supplier initially builds up a processing framework called cloud, where a couple of virtual machines are interconnected through this; the provider shapes the undertaking of the customers. Distributed computing is certifiably not a respectful model to offer the customer to a typical pool of configurable processing assets that can be promptly given and discharged low care effort or administration will consider the particular errand planning  of better execution registering approaches.
It has been found that energy efficiency and scalability concepts are too much important for working with the virtual machines which are ignored by many researchers in cloud technology. This paper describes the membership function for enhanced MSS which easily and efficiently handles the management of resources on cloud servers while performing effective job scheduling in cloudcomputing. The bivalent theory is used for transferring the jobs from one machine to another machine. To handle such issues, an improved MSS scheduling using fuzzification that improved the load balancing based on fuzzy values has been proposed.The MATLAB is used for its design and implementation. In addition. Evaluations have been carried out on execution time analysis and throughput which leads to better management of power consumption and with high speed. This comparison results shows that the efficiency of the proposed algorithm is greater than the existing approaches.

Lovejit Singh et al (2013). CloudComputing refers to a paradigm whereby services are offered by internet using pay as you go model. Services are deployed in data centers and the pool of data centers is together referred to as “Cloud”. Data centers make use of scheduling techniques to optimally allocate resources to diverse jobs. Different scenarios require different scheduling algorithms. The selection of a specific scheduling algorithm depends upon various factors like the parameter to be optimized (cost or time), eminence of service to be provided and information available concerning various aspects of job. Workflow applications are the applications which involve various sub-tasks to be executed in a particular fashion in order to complete the entire task. These tasks have parent child association. The parent task needs to be executed before its child task.
Abstract: Recently, there has been a dramatic increase in the popularity of cloudcomputing systems that rent computing resources on-demand, bill on a pay-as-you-go basis, and multiplex many users on the same physical infrastructure. It is a virtual pool of resources which are provided to users via Internet. It gives users virtually unlimited pay-per-use computing resources without the burden of managing the underlying infrastructure. One of the goals is to use the resources efficiently and gain maximum profit. Scheduling is a critical problem in Cloudcomputing, because a cloud provider has to serve many users in Cloudcomputing system. So scheduling is the major issue in establishing Cloudcomputing systems. The scheduling algorithms should order the jobs in a way where balance between improving the performance and quality of service and at the same time maintaining the efficiency and fairness among the jobs. This paper aims at studying various scheduling methods. A good scheduling technique also helps in proper and efficient utilization of the resources. Many scheduling techniques have been developed by the researchers like GA (Genetic Algorithm), PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization), Min-Min, Max-Min, Priority based Job Scheduling Algorithm . This paper reviews certain papers on resource management and job scheduling in cloudcomputing.
Cloudcomputing is basically internet based computing while software, information and shared resources are provided to devices and computers on demand, like electricity grid. With the fusion of network technology and traditional computing technology such as distributed computing parallel computing, grid computing a cloudcomputing product is formed. Task scheduling is the major concern in the field of cloudcomputing. As the use of cloudcomputing increases, the burden on the cloud network also increases. So, it’s the duty of the scheduler to make cloud efficient to solve client's tasks. This work focuses on the same to achieve the objective of optimized task scheduling where improved genetic algorithm is proposed. Genetic algorithm is artificial intelligent based soft computing technique to optimize the process. Here in this work, genetic algorithm is enhanced using new fitness function based on mean and grand mean values. This optimization can be implemented on both ends, for job scheduling and resource scheduling. This will schedule the whole process and optimize as much as possible. The results analysis also proves the cloud system’s increased efficiency for task scheduling.
I n cloudcomputing, IaaS approach is to increase the efficiency and utilization of resource, equipment and existing networks . In this approach, it is attempted to manage request executions so that operational costs such as energy consumption in datacenters, and costs of networks would be reduced . Cloudcomputing by numerous virtual machines on some data centers increase capability of response to requests. Here, managing virtual machines and physical resources, besides scheduling policies of tasks, is a significant issue. An inappropriate scheduling may involve numerous resource for a series of requests while, an optimized scheduling with less resources and better management give the same response. In cloudcomputing there are many serial request of users at the same times and conditions is causing similar condition for cloud . Iteration of similar events indicates that a learning algorithm is able to provide suitable efficiency in such conditions. Appling intelligent methods based on learning to the cloud, is increasing in the field of optimization of tasks scheduling and resource allocation . In this research, we will attempt to present a method based on scheduling information of the past of cloud so that it would be
Abstract: Resource management and task scheduling are necessary for satisfying proper job (task) scheduling. Scheduling defines the process or methodology for data flows which are implemented to insure resource high utilization. One of the most used algorithms is shortest job first (SJF) in which deciding jobs order is queued to be processed, with cloudcomputing more than one virtual machine could be used. Distributed scheduling schemes need to be efficient for better performance. In this research, we proposed a new, efficient approach for allocating and scheduling users’ tasks in the cloud environment. The main goal is to enhance the performance metrics such as: 1-reducing the waiting time and 2- increasing the throughput of a given task set to have an efficient mapping of tasks using the same shortest job first (SJF) scheduling algorithm. The proposed policy is tested to conduct performance evaluation.
