Cloud computing renders umpteen number of services such as offering computing resources like processing power, storage of data and user applications. Load balancing in cloud computing is of paramount importance. As the request floods in, certain nodes might become heavily loaded. So it is essential to spread the load uniformly among the nodes. On the whole load balancing enhances the overall performance of the system and provides proper utilization of resources. In this paper, a review of
