The cloud is becoming an important service in internet computing. Infrastructure-as-a-Service provides on-demand virtual machines to users. Load balancing plays an important role in the deployment of virtual machines onto physical hosts. Resource requirement of virtual machine is hard to predict. Thus to deal with this issue, lots of load balancing methods are present. So in this paper, the authors discuss these load balancing methods to provide overview of latest approaches in IaaS. Different load balancing methods have different parameters. So, they compared them on the basis of parameters used for their method. They have proposed their own load balancing method after comparing all available methods.
