Abstract In the cloud environment, utilization of resources should be scaled-up and scaled-down according to the customer needs. Managing the scalability in the cloud is a critical issue. Scalability can be accomplished by dynamic resource allocation. This dynamic resource allocation based on demand is efficient only on the knowledge of load prediction. Improving the accuracy of load prediction is essential to achieve optimal job scheduling and load balancing for cloud computing. When the load prediction and server reliability is carried out simultaneously, an optimal resource allocation is possible. Various load prediction methods are discussed in this paper.
