Cloud computing is one of the incredible technology which enable the new vision for IT industry. Nowadays, it has become a strong alternative for startup large as well as small scale organizations that only use the resources which actually required based on pay as per use. As Cloud Computing is growing continuously and clients from different parts of the world are demanding for the various services and better outcomes, the load balancing has become the challenge for the cloud provider. To accurately manage the available resources of the different cloud provider, resources have to be properly selected according to the properties of task. Many algorithms have been proposed to provide efficient mechanisms and assigning the client's requests to available cloud nodes and aim to enhance the overall performance of the cloud and provide more satisfaction to user and efficient services. Initially this paper gives an introduction to cloud computing and load balancing. A detailed survey on different load balancing policy in cloud analyst, their advantages and drawback with obtainable solution and learn how to add new policy or customize existing load balancing policy.
