Cloud Computing is a flourishing technology nowadays because of its scalability, flexibility, availability of resources and other features. Resource multiplexing is done through the virtualization technologyin cloud computing. Virtualization technology acts as a backbone for provisioning requirements of the cloud based solutions. At present, load balancing is one of the challenging issues in cloud computing environment. This issue arises due to massive consumer demands variety of services as per their dynamically changing requirements. So it becomes liabilityof cloud service provide to facilitate all the demanded services to the cloud consumers. However, due to the availability of finite resources, it is very challenging for cloud service providers to facilitate all the demanded services efficiently. From the cloud service provider’s perspective, cloud resources must be allocated in a fair manner. This paper mainly addresses the existing techniques for resource allocation in cloud computing environment. It also focuses on the key issues, challenges of various resource allocation techniques.
