Summary: 
A cloud system is defined as a large scale computer system that contains running high performance computers and responds to a large number of incoming tasks over the Internet. In this paper, we consider the problem to schedule computational jobs efficiently regarding system resource constraint and introduce a cuckoo search (CS) algorithm. Experimental results show that CS outperforms the genetic algorithm in terms of fitness value.
