In today's world, cloud computing is one of the most powerful platforms for storing data at a low cost and making it available at all times via the internet. However, it has more serious issues such as security, load management, and fault tolerance. The Load Balancing approach is discussed in this paper. Cloud-related loads include memory load, CPU load, and network load. Load balancing is the process of distributing load across multiple nodes in order to optimize resource usage when nodes are overburdened with work. When one node is overloaded, load balancing must handle the load. When a node becomes overloaded, the load is distributed to the other ideal nodes. Many algorithms are available for load balancing like Static load balancing and dynamic load balancing.
