[Full Text]



Harvinder Singh1, Anshu Bhasin1, Parag Ravikant Kaveri2, Vinay Chavan3



Resource allocation, Resource scheduling, QoS, SLA, Heterogeneity, Scalability, VM management, Resource utilization, Energy consumption, Security, Monitoring.



Cloud resource management is momentous for efficient resource allocation and scheduling that requires for fulfilling customers’ expectations. But, it is difficult to predict an appropriate matching in a heterogeneous and dynamic cloud environment that leads to performance degradation and SLA violation. Thus, resource management is a challenging task that may be compromised because of the inappropriate allocation of the required resource. This paper presents a systematic review and analytical comparisons of existing surveys, research work exists on SLA, resource allocation and resource scheduling in cloud computing. Further, discussion on open research issues, current status and future research directions in the field of cloud resource management.
