Abstract: Nowadays cloud computing is an emerging field, requires more algorithm and techniques for the various process of cloud computing. Here, we have considered the job scheduling process in cloud computing platform that needs a good algorithm to schedule the jobs requested from various users of cloud computing environment. Here, the request can be from any platform so scheduling is indispensable one when a number of users need the particular jobs. In this research, we have intended to develop a hybrid algorithm for job scheduling in cloud computing environment. Accordingly, multiple criteria will be taken for scheduling various jobs located in various servers. Then, the job scheduling will be done based on a hybrid optimisation algorithm. Additionally, different jobs with different constraints will be considered and the cloud computing environment is simulated with the help of cloudsim tool.

Keywords: cloud computing; firefly algorithm; BAT algorithm; job scheduling; FF-BAT algorithm.
