Priority Based Job Scheduling Algorithm for Heterogeneous Cloud Environment

S.Rekha and R.Santhosh Kumar

Cloud computing is a form of distributed and parallel computing, whereby a super and virtual computer is composed of a cluster of networked, loosely coupled computers acting in concert to perform very large task. It has emerged as a strong domain in the field of networking primarily due to the ability of running an application or program simultaneously on multiple nodes that are connected through a network. Hence, it involves sharing of resource or computational information amongst the nodes. A proper job-scheduling algorithm is required for the efficient functioning of the cloud environment. The proposed priority based scheduling algorithm for cloud computing is based on factors that govern the functioning of a job.

Keywords: Cloud Computing, Job Scheduling, Priority, Computational Complexity and Level of Parallelism
