A Study of a New Dynamic Load Balancing Approach in Cloud Environment

Sanjay Chakraborty, Nilotpal Choudhury
2016 World Journal of Computer Application and Technology  
It also deals with some of the major problems of load balancing in cloud environment like, timeout. Finally, it shows how this approach is fitted in famous AWS and GAE cloud architecture partially.  ...  This is a paper over solving the problems exist in the present days by logically analyzing and presenting in an algorithmic format.  ...  In future, this load balancing algorithm can be associated with some optimization techniques (PSO, ACO, GA etc.) to give more flexibility to distributing the loads and improving the performance of the  ...

A Scalable Cluster-based Infrastructure for Edge-computing Services

Raffaella Grieco, Delfina Malandrino, Vittorio Scarano
2006 World wide web (Bussum)  
Therefore, a crucial capability is allowing the service user 1 to (re)configure the EcS that is actually used, by changing some parameters and/or placing it in a pipeline with other EcSs.  ...  In fact, heterogeneity and quick obsolescence of devices requires a number of specific services to be easily assembled and provided to clients.  ...  In particular, fruitful discussions were done with Maria Barra and Alberto Negro. We also thank Michele Colajanni for several interesting comments on preliminary versions of our work.  ...

A Green Strategy for Federated and Heterogeneous Clouds with Communicating Workloads

Jordi Mateo, Jordi Vilaplana, Lluis M. Plà, Josep Ll. Lérida, Francesc Solsona
2014 The Scientific World Journal  
We provide a solution for heterogeneous job-communicating tasks and heterogeneous VMs that make up the nodes of the cloud.  ...  In addition to guaranteeing the SLA, the main goal is to optimize energy savings. The solution results in an equation that must be solved by a solver with nonlinear capabilities.  ...  A better solution in this case would be to balance the tasks between the VMs of such a node in order to increase SLA performance.  ...
