Abstract

Cloud computing is a platform that hosts applications and services for businesses and users to accesses computing as a service. In this paper, we identify two scheduling and resource allocation problems in cloud computing. We describe Hadoop MapReduce and its schedulers, and present recent research efforts in this area including alternative schedulers and enhancements to existing schedulers. The second scheduling problem is the provisioning of virtual machines to resources in the cloud. We present a survey of the different approaches to solve this resource allocation problem. We also include recent research and standards for inter-connecting clouds and discuss the suitability of running scientific applications in the cloud.
