Cloud computing provides a dynamic model that provides many more services to users, as well as organizations, that can purchase based on their requirements. Cloud offers services such as storage for data, a platform for application development and testing, providing an environment to access web services, and so on. Common issues in a cloud environment are maintaining the application performance with Quality of Service (QoS) and Service Level Agreement (SLA) provided by the service providers to the organization. The major task done by the service providers is to distribute the workload among multiple servers. An effective load-balancing technique should satisfy the user requirements through efficient resource allocation in Virtual Machines. A review of various LB techniques that result in overall performance and research gaps is discussed in this paper. 

Keywords: Architecture, Cloud computing, Issues, Load balancing, Metrics.
