Cloud computing has seen a major boom during the past few years. Many people have switched to cloud computing because traditional systems require complex resource distribution and cloud solutions are less expensive. Load balancing (LB) is one of the essential challenges in cloud computing used to balance the workload of cloud services. This research paper presents a performance evaluation of the existing load-balancing algorithms which are particle swarm optimization (PSO), round robin (RR), equally spread current execution (ESCE), and throttled load balancing. This study offers a detailed performance evaluation of various load-balancing algorithms by employing a cloud analyst platform. Efficiency concerning various service broker policy configurations for load-balancing algorithms’ virtual machine load balance was also calculated using metrics such as optimized response time (ORT), data center processing time (DCPT), virtual machine costs, data transfer costs, and total cost for different workloads and user bases. Many of the past papers that were mentioned in the literature worked on round robin and equally spread current execution, and throttled load-balancing algorithms were based on efficiency and response time in virtual machines without recognizing the relation between the task and the virtual machines, and the practical significance of the application. A comparison of specific load-balancing algorithms has been investigated. Different service broker policy (SBP) tests have been conducted to illustrate the load-balancing algorithm capabilities.
