In present days cloud computing is one of the greatest platform which provides storage of data in very lower cost and available for all time over the internet.But it has more critical issue like security, load management and fault tolerance. In this paper we are discussing Load Balancing approach. Resource scheduling management design on Cloud computing is an important problem. Scheduling model, cost, quality of service, time, and conditions of the request for access to services are factors to be focused. A good task scheduler should adapt its scheduling strategy to the changing environment and load balancing Cloud task scheduling policy. Cloud Computing is high utility software having the ability to change the IT software industry and making the software even more attractive. It has also changed the way IT companies used to buy and design hardware. The elasticity of resources without paying a premium for large scale is unprecedented in the history of IT industry. The increase in web traffic and different services are increasing day by day making load balancing a big research topic. Cloud computing is a new technology which uses virtual machine instead of physical machine to host, store and network the different components. Load balancers are used for assigning load to different virtual machines in such a way that none of the nodes gets loaded heavily or lightly. The load balancing needs to be done properly because failure in any one of the node can lead to unavailability of data.
