The characteristic of high scalability, elasticity and availability of infinite computing resources have obliged many
organizations to deploy mission critical and user centric applications in the cloud computing environment. To avoid any single point
of failure in the cloud system the cloud service provider provide redundancy at all levels in the datacenter but the recent natural
disasters have made the datacenter itself a single point of failure. Thus, to deploy applications in the datacenters dispersed across
geographic regions has become the need of the hour. Efficient load balancing among these datacenters is critical to increase user
responsiveness and seamless failover in case of natural disasters. In this research paper we critically analysed the state-of-the art
techniques used for Global Server Load Balancing and have proposed a novel model of networked load balancers for load balancing
across the datacenters in cloud computing environment. The proposed model overcomes the shortcomings of existing DNS based
load balancing by considering current load status of datacenter, by making time to live of DNS server cache redundant and by
finding the exact location by real IP of end user.

In this paper, we have proposed a new model for global
server load balancing which gives resilient and
intelligently balanced datacenters. Balancing load at two
levels this framework considers the current health status
of datacenter to deliver services from the least loaded
datacenter to reduce the response time. It calculates the
geographic location of end user with the help of its IP
address to deliver services from the least loaded
datacenter which is nearest to the user.
