clustering

 [klus´ter-ing]
gathering together.
conceptual clustering the process of analyzing, examining relationships in, and organizing theoretically the current knowledge in a field of study in order to add to an existing knowledge base and generate further questions for research.

Load balancing software solution distributes load of work among various servers through software-defined networks and virtual network resources.
The objective of this paper is to propose a load balancing algorithm aims to distribute the dynamic workload smoothly to all the hosts in the cloud to gain an improvement in both the utilization of resources and the speed of execution time.
Static load balancing is used only at start-up when the power distribution network is being divided into roots based on normal switch statuses.
In dynamic load balancing load is moved from one virtual machine other machine.
When targeting event-triggered WSN applications, the load balancing should explore the coverage redundancy since several sensor nodes can be triggered by the same event but only one has to process the tasks it produces.
Replication strategies have multipurpose efficiency on data reliability, response latency, and load balancing. Static replica strategy is easy to implement, which allocates first copy on a default node, and then randomly allocates other copies on some nodes [6].
Load balancing also provides horizontal scaling e .g., adding computing resources in order to address increased loads [19].
The vThunder load balancing and L4-7 ADC functions have enhanced both the scalability and flexibility of its cloud platform.
The MCCA scheme supports the spatial TDMA scheme, but it cannot achieve load balancing. So, an additional routing algorithm that considers current load conditions of each link should also be applied for load balancing.
Section 2 introduces related works on load balancing schemes on wireless networks.
According to the stage that the load balancing algorithm implements on, load balancing algorithm can be divided into static (e.g., [6, 11, 12]) and dynamic (e.g., [13-15]).
“Over time, HALO will expand the production capabilities such that most HALO products can be built in this plant, further increasing the flexibility in load balancing our production requirements,” said Jeffrey Heaton, Vice President of HALO Electronics.
