Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Cloud computing is becoming more popular, unlike conventional computing, due to its added advantages. This is because it offers utility-based services to its subscribers upon their demand. Furthermore, this computing environment provides IT services to its users where they pay for every use. However, the increasing number of tasks requires virtual machines for them to be accomplished quickly. Load balancing a critical concern in cloud computing due to the massive increase in users' numbers. This paper proposes the best heuristic load balancing algorithm that will schedule a strategy for resource allocation that will minimize make span (completion time) in any technology that involves use cloud computing. The proposed algorithm performs better than other load balancing algorithms.
