While load balancing techniques have been designed and evaluated for efficient resource utilization in cloud computing, achieving energy efficiency as a consequence of load balancing often does not get direct attention. In this paper, the authors describe two load balancing algorithms that focus on balancing workload distribution among physical hosts in the cloud infrastructure. The test results presented in this paper, reveal the strength and weaknesses of the algorithms. In this paper, they aim to analyze the impact of their load balancing on energy consumption in the cloud infrastructure.
