A Comparative Survey of Algorithm used in Cloud Computing

IJCSEC Front Page

Cloud computing is emerged as a data interactive model in which users can store their data in an online cloud server. Cloud computing services can be private, public or hybrid. Users can access the applications as utilities over the internet. We can create, configure and customize the application. Online storing and retrieving data in third party's cloud system causes serious conflict over data security and data confidentiality. To overcome this problem, methods like cryptography can be used. The data stored in encrypted format and it will make available to the authenticated requested person after decrypting the data. As the cloud server has numerous amounts of data, load balancing is also a serious concern. Here we have studied and made a comparative analysis of algorithm used in cloud computing for secured data forwarding and load balancing.
