Abstract: Cloud computing is the recent mantra for all the techies and internet users all around the world. The power of cloud computing is enormous as it provides big services in an optimal cost as well as in a reliable manner. Load balancing of tasks in the cloud server is an important issue to be addressed. In this paper, we propose a task clustering algorithm to minimise the load across the cloud servers through content-based load balancing of tasks using task clustering methods and cost reduction method for optimal energy consumption at all the cloud data centre heads. The results analysed in our paper are better when compared with existing content-based load balancing models. Our approach clearly represents the achievement of optimal load balancing of tasks with respect to upload bandwidth utilisation, minimal latency and some other quality of service (QoS) metrics.

Keywords: cloud computing; load balancing; tasks clustering; cost reduction; energy consumption; QoS; quality of service; metrics.
