A Cloud computing allows to users to get computing resources and services over the internet in the form of an on-demand service using virtualization technology. While cloud resources are built in different locations so they need new strategies to manage the running of them. These strategies may contain more than one algorithm. In cloud computing system, scheduling system is the one of the main keys of system’s performance. The scheduling system doesn’t include task scheduling strategies only, but also it contains fault tolerance and load balancing strategies. Scheduling system is used in cloud management and handling failure. In this study, we discuss some scheduling algorithms and their advantages and disadvantages. Also we guide readers to choose the best for achieving the high quality.
