Abstract : Over the years, distributed environments have evolved from shared community platforms to utility-based models; the latest of these being Cloud computing. This technology enables the delivery of IT resources over the Internet and follows a pay-as-you-go model where users are charged based on their usage. There are various types of Cloud providers each of which has different product offerings. They are classified into a hierarchy of as-a-service terms: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). There are a mass of researches on the issue of scheduling in cloud computing, most of them, however, are about workflow and job scheduling. A cloud workflow system is a type of platform service which facilitates the automation of distributed applications based on the novel cloud infrastructure. Many scheduling policies have been proposed till now which aim to maximize the amount of work completed while meeting QoS constraints such as deadline and budget. However many of them are not optimal to incorporate some basic principles of Cloud Computing such as the elasticity and heterogeneity of the computing resources. Therefore our work focuses on studying various problems and issues related to workflow scheduling.
