Cloud computing has become extremely popular by obviating the need for users to own and maintain complex and costly infrastructure. Cloud computing enables customers with limited computational resources to outsource large scale computational tasks to the cloud where massive computational power can be easily utilized in a pay-per-use manner. An internet based development where dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the internet has become significant issue. Cloud computing has paved a revolutionary path in this direction of distributed environment for accomplishing optimized performance, quick response time, net work resource utilization, and adaptability of Service Level Agreement (SLA). Cloud computing has multiple benefits as well as it is also accompanied with certain serious technical loopholes. In this paper we focused on one such issue of load balancing. As cloud computing is growing rapidly and clients are demanding more services and better results, load balancing has become a very interesting and important research area. In this paper, we investigate the different algorithms proposed to resolve the issue of load balancing in cloud computing. We discuss and compare various techniques adopted to provide latest approaches in this field.
