Task scheduling and workflow scheduling are two paradigms in cloud computing which differ in the extent of data involved. Workflow deals with huge scientific or business data patterns while task corresponds to a single job comprising customer or service provider application. Both requires efficient resource provisioning and utilization.
In this paper, the process involved from application submission to its completion involving different phases has been discussion thoroughly along with the challenges faced by both types scheduling.
