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.

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
