Study on Task Scheduling and Resource Allocation in Cloud Computing Using ACO

Authors(2) :-S. Krishnaprasad, Dr. P Srivaramangai

The development of cloud computing infrastructures carries innovative ideas to make prove and control computing system by means that of the flexibility present with virtualization technologies. In this framework, it focuses on two important goals. Initial to afford virtualization and cloud computing infrastructures to make distributed large scale computing platforms from completely different cloud providers approved to run software involving large volumes of computation power. Subsequently developing methods to invent these infrastructures are more dynamic. This method provides inter cloud live migration planning and innovative ideas to utilize the inherent dynamic environment of distributed clouds. A load balancing process is considered as an important optimization process for utilizing dynamic resource allocation in cloud computing. In order to achieve maximum resource efficiency and extensibility in a quick manner and this process is concerned with multiple objectives for an efficient distribution of loads among virtual machines. During this realm, analyze new algorithms, as well as development of novel algorithms, is highly desired for technological improvement and long-term progress in resource allocation application in cloud computing. In this paper, a cloud load reconciliation policy ant Colony improvement (ACO) inspired by ant Systems is introduced. Consequently, this paper provides an general idea of cloud computing and resource allocation techniques then completely different existing scheduling algorithms in cloud computing.
