Cloud computing is based on the concepts of distributed computing, grid computing, utility computing and virtualization. It is a virtual pool of resources which are provided to users via Internet. It gives users virtually unlimited pay-per-use computing resources without the burden of managing the underlying infrastructure. Cloud computing service providers' one of the goals is to use the resources efficiently and gain maximum profit. This leads to task scheduling as a core and challenging issue in cloud computing. This paper gives different scheduling strategies and algorithms in cloud computing.
