An Exploration of Multi-Objective Scientific Workflow Scheduling in Cloud

Authors(2) :-Arunkumar Panneerselvam, Bhuvaneswari Subbaraman

Today's scientific community highly relies upon scientific workflow applications for various operations related to their field. Distributed environment like cloud perfectly matches for executing large-scale scientific applications by providing enormous on demand resources. Hence scientific workflows scheduling in cloud environment gain importance. The cloud resources renting follows pay per use model and thus the cloud users are constrained to work under multiple objectives like time and cost. This paper explorers the work of research community in the area of Multi-Objective scheduling of scientific workflows in the cloud environment.
