This paper presented a proposed model for cloud computing scheduling based on multiple queuing models. This allowed us to improve the quality of service by minimize execution time per jobs, waiting time and the cost of resources to satisfy user's requirements. By taking advantage of some useful proprieties of queuing theory scheduling algorithm is proposed to improve scheduling process. Experimental results indicate that our model increases utilization of global scheduler and reduce waiting time.
