Cloud computing is a utility to deliver services and resources to the users through high speed internet. It has a number of types and hybrid cloud is one of them. Delivering services in a hybrid cloud is an uphill task. One of the challenges associated with this paradigm is the even distribution among the resources of a hybrid cloud, often refereed as load balancing. Through load balancing resource utilization and job response time can be improved. This will lead to better performance results. Energy consumption and carbon emission can also be reduced if the load is evenly distributed. Hence, in this paper we have conducted a survey of the load balancing algorithms in order to compare the pros and cons of the most widely used load balancing algorithms.
