Issues and Challenges of Load Balancing Algorithm in Cloud Computing Environment


Objectives: To enlighten the issues and challenges of Load Balancing Algorithm (LBA) for cloud computing environment. In this study the authors proposed a LBA for cloud computing server. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The numerous LBAs are compared with objective, merit, demerit and challenges of the LBA in terms of parameters such as performance, response time, scalability, overhead and many more. This study facilitates identification of efficient LBA for optimizes resource use, minimum response time, maximum throughput and avoidance of overload. Findings: The load balancer is permitted in most instances to provide support continuity as well as dealing with extra traffic. Consequently the useful load balancing algorithms required to find inexpensive resource usage by provisioning of resources to cloud users. The use of proposed algorithm is to improve the overhead and load imbalance factor of the system. Application: The Load Balancing (LB) is a vital feature of cloud computing environment. The economical LB algorithm assures cost effective resource usage by provisioning of resources to cloud users on demand schedule in pay-as-you-say-manner. The LB may actually provide assistance prioritizing users by using suitable scheduling requirements and also it is crucial part in cloud computing for maintaining the work load across various systems over the network and gives minimum processing time, minimum response time and ignores the workload.
