Survey on Improved Scheduling in Hadoop MapReduce in Cloud Environments

Cloud Computing is emerging as a new computational paradigm shift. Hadoop-MapReduce has become a powerful Computation Model for processing large data on distributed commodity hardware clusters such as Clouds. In all Hadoop implementations, the default FIFO scheduler is available where jobs are scheduled in FIFO order with support for other priority based schedulers also. In this paper, the authors explain various scheduler improvements possible with Hadoop and also provided some guidelines on how to improve the scheduling in Hadoop in Cloud Environments.
