Cloud Computing Technology has hatched some fascinating services, including hosted file servers, applications on demand and business continuity solutions. The volume of data storage upsurges quickly in open environment. So, load balancing is a main challenge in cloud environment. Load balancing helps to distribute the dynamic workload across multiple nodes to ensure that no single node is overloaded. It helps in proper utilization of resources. It also improve the performance of the system. Cloud data center management is an essential problem due to the numerous and heterogeneous strategies that can be applied, ranging from the virtual machine location to the coalition with other clouds. Load Balancing is important for essential operations in cloud virtual environments. Many algorithms have been developed for allocating client’s requests to available remote nodes. This paper presents a survey on load balancing algorithms in cloud management systems and virtual desktop infrastructure as well as properties of cloud computing. The survey also presents a comparative metrics on load balancing algorithms such as round robin, honey bee, ant colony, and active clustering and others as main the focus.
