Task Scheduling in Cloud Environment Using Multi-objective Genetic Algorithm

R K Jena

Abstract— Cloud computing is an emerging computing paradigm with a large collection of heterogeneous autonomous systems with flexible computational architecture. Task scheduling is an important step to improve the overall performance of the cloud computing. Task scheduling is also essential to reduce power consumption and improve the profit of service providers by reducing processing time. This paper focuses on task scheduling using a multi-objective genetic algorithm (TSGA) to optimize energy and processing time. The result obtained by TSGA was simulated by an open source cloud platform (CloudSim). Finally, the results were compared to existing scheduling algorithms and found that the proposed algorithm (TSGA) provide an optimal balance results for multiple objectives.
