Abstract: With the increasing demand of the cloud, load on the cloud server increases and lead to high cost consumption for computations of the tasks. So, to deal with this challenge a lot of researchers develop load balancing algorithms, scheduling algorithms. The current existing algorithms handles the issues of load balancing but the cost of computation is not reduced till now. So, the main focus of this paper to propose a Cost-Aware load Balancing Framework for different existed optimized scheduling algorithms like GA, PBO, and ACO and proposed EPC Scheduling algorithm. EPC is enhanced PBO algorithm where combination of PBO and GA algorithm is used for enhancement. This combination helps to select the appropriate resources for the tasks for its execution and better allocation. In this framework tasks are divided into groups and accordingly resources will be provided to them which increases the utilization factor and reduces cost. For analysis of this proposed framework, homogeneous and heterogeneous cloud environments are generated using local cloud environment and analysis is done on the basis of load balancing factor and cost of computation where minimum 50 and maximum 500 jobs are allocated to 100 resources. Results of the proposed algorithm achieved better results along with the optimization algorithms.
