Abstract

Cloudcomputing has transformed the world of communication systems into a new modern way. A cloud system consists of a vast variety of resources like processors, memory and software that are distributed all around the world. Task scheduling has a critical part in the performance and service of the cloud system. Plenty of task scheduling algorithms exist whose aim is to intensify the overall quality of the system. This article investigates and categorizes these algorithms based on task scheduling metrics of the cloud environment.

Keywords

Cloud system Cloud deployment models and services Task scheduling Scheduling metrics
