Scheduling Algorithms in Cloud Computing: A Review

Paridhi Naithani, Anu .


Abstract: Cloud computing is one of the emanate computer technologies in information technology that provide shared resources like databases, storage, servers, and software to the users according to need on rental basis, which results in no initial setup cost. Scheduling is one of the critical aspects that influence the system performance. Scheduling algorithm is said to be efficient if it minimizes the completion time of the task, with limited resource usage and is also cost effective. There is hardly any algorithm that provides optimal results in less time. In this study, various scheduling algorithms like FCFS (first come first serve), genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, etc. are analyzed and discussed. Comparative study is done among these algorithms based on different factors like execution time, cost, makespan, etc.

Keywords: Cloud computing, scheduling, ant colony optimization, genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization
