Cloud computing offers paid hosting and Internet services. It has now become a preferred method for scalable network communication and computing because of its many attractive features such as high availability, scalability, fault tolerance, management simplicity and low costs. Due to the strong demand for cloud computing, efficient load balancing is essential to ensure a uniform distribution of IT tasks on servers to avoid bottlenecks. The purpose of this evaluation document is to focus on existing issues of cloud computing, including balancing cloud loads through static algorithms and fetching gaps to create feasible and efficient static load balancing in cloud. We believe that the ideas presented as a new solution will enable researchers to redefine better algorithms for better features and better experiences in cloud systems. This can help businesses that cannot be affordable for an infrastructure that supports complex and load balancing algorithms.
