In the cloud computing paradigm, load balancing is one of the challenges, With Tremendous increase in the users and their demand of different services on the cloud computing platform, fruitful or efficient usage of resources in the cloud environment became a critical concern. Load balancing is playing a vital role in maintaining the rhythm of Cloud computing. The performance metrics of load balancing algorithms in cloud are response time and waiting time. In this paper we mainly focus on two load balancing algorithms in cloud, Min-Min and Max-Min algorithm.
