DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2017

Cloud computing is a new generation of computing environment which delivers the applications as a service to users over the internet. The users can select any service from a list provided by service providers depending on their demands or needs. The nature of this new computing environment leads to tasks scheduling and load balancing problems which become a booming research area. In this paper, we have proposed Scheduling Cost Approach (SCA) that calculates the cost of CPU, RAM, bandwidth, storage available. In this approach, the tasks will be distributed among the VMs based on the priority given by user. The priority depends on the user budget satisfaction. The proposed SCA will try to improve the load balance by selecting suitable VM for each task. The results of SCA are compared with the results of FCFS and SJF algorithms which proves that, the proposed SCA approach significantly reduces the cost of CPU, RAM, bandwidth, storage compared to FCFS and SJF algorithms.
