Water-Filling: A Novel Approach of Load Rebalancing for File Systems in Cloud
File systems serves as the backend for cloud computing and load balancing is the relevant issue in context of resource utilization for distributed file systems in cloud. Prior to this, it is fruitful to identify the load on the storage servers (nodes) which is equivalent to number of file chunks it stored. Here, is an extension of load balancing i.e. water-filling load rebalancing operated on distributed approach based on water-filling methodology, contrasting all the earlier algorithms that were grounded on centralized and distributed approaches, is used for balancing the load on servers by distributing file chunks making it more amplified to perform map reducing tasks.
