Cloud computing has an intricate connection to grid computing. Cloud is a large collection of simply functional and available virtualized resources. Resource Scheduling is a way of determining the schedule on which, the activities are performed. Resource scheduling is a complicated task in a cloud environment because of heterogeneity of the computing resources. The most important objective of the cloud scheduler is scheduling the resources successfully and economically. There are two existing techniques for resource scheduling i.e. power-aware and non-power aware. Power aware technique minimizes the power consumption as compared to the non-power aware technique. The proposed technique is used to overcome the limitations of the existing techniques. The proposed technique gives a better result by reducing the total execution time, power consumption and the number of SLA violation as compared to the existing techniques.
