Cloud computing is emerging as a necessary need for the IT industry in order to reduce the setup and operational cost of its infrastructure. There is a huge requirement of computing resources to satisfy customer demands. A minute delay in a service may result in a measurable amount of loss for an organization. Response time is a major metric for evaluating performance of cloud applications. Cloud data centers form backbone of cloud computing. Data centers consume enormous amount of energy. Server racks have processing units, storage and network interface. Energy is dissipated at the server racks and cooling units. Various task scheduling algorithms and virtual machine scheduling algorithms have been proposed to measure the loss in performance but the energy loss is kept at the lowest priority. The paper is focused on discussing about the two techniques that maintain a scheduled routine for tasks arriving in a data center through a simulation scenario. VM-specific scheduling of tasks is done for assignment of the tasks to single or multiple virtual machines. Comparison of the two techniques, time-shared and space-shared technique is also done to give the reader a clear view about the situation in which both techniques are used. Future work is also discussed in the same context.

Keywords: Cloud computing, Cloudlet, Energy, Space-shared, Time-shared.
