Cloud resource allocation, a real-time problem can be dealt with efficaciously to reduce execution cost and improve resource utilization. Resource usability can fulfill customers expectations if the allocation has performed according to demand constraint. Task Scheduling is NP-hard problem where unsuitable matching leads to performance degradation and violation of service level agreement (SLA). In this research paper, the workflow scheduling problem has been conducted with objective of higher exploitation of resources. To overcome scheduling optimization problem, the proposed QoS based resource allocation and scheduling has used swarm-based ant colony optimization provide more predictable results. The experimentation of proposed algorithms has been done in a simulated cloud environment. Further, the results of the proposed algorithm have been compared with other policies, it performed better in terms of Quality of Service parameters.
