Load Balancing in Cloud Environment: A Review

Sandeep Kaur, Parminder Pal Kaur
Cloud computing is the means of accessing a shared pool of configurable computing resources (including hardware, software, networks, servers, storage applications and services) that can be rapidly provided, used and released with minimal effort on the part of users or service providers. But it has some of the main concerns like load management and fault tolerance. In this paper we are discussing load balancing approach in cloud computing. Load balancing is helped to distribute the workload

It helps in proper utilization of resources .It also improves the performance of the system This paper focuses on the load balancing algorithm which distributes the incoming jobs among VMs optimally in cloud data centers. In this paper, we have reviewed several existing load balancing mechanisms and we have tried to address the problems associated with them.
