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.
