Cloud computing is becoming one of the most escalating technologies that have got huge potentials in enterprises and markets. Clouds can makes possible to access any applications and associated data from anywhere. Companies are able to rent resources from cloud for storage and many other computational purposes so that their infrastructure cost can be reduced significantly. On the other hand it can make use of company wide access to applications, based on pay-as-you-go model. Hence there is no need to take licenses for individual products. However one of the major pitfalls in cloud computing is to optimizing the resources. Because of the uniqueness of the model, resource allocation is performed to minimizing the costs. The other challenges of resource allocation are to fulfill the customer demands as requirements. In this paper, various resource allocation strategies and their challenges are discussed in detail. It is supposed that this paper will be beneficiary both cloud users and researchers in overcoming the challenges faced.

Cloud Computing; Cloud Services; Resource Allocation; Infrastructure

This paper addresses the theoretic study of various dynamic resource allocation techniques in cloud environment. These models are classified based on their strategies, and a discussion of their strengths and limitations is supported by a comparison table. Finally, research directions and findings from our literature review are included, and hopefully they will help in motivating future research to determine optimal RA solutions for cloud environments. The detail description of the techniques is summarized and also summarizes the advantages with parameters of the various techniques in cloud computing environment.
