The objective the work is intended to highlight the key features and afford finest future directions in the research community of Resource Allocation, Resource Scheduling and Resource management from 2009 to 2016. Exemplifying how research on Resource Allocation, Resource Scheduling and Resource management has progressively increased in the past decade by inspecting articles, papers from scientific and standard publications. Survey materialized in three-fold process. Firstly, investigate on the amalgamation of Resource Allocation, Resource Scheduling and then proceeded with Resource management. Secondly, we performed a structural analysis on different author’s prominent contributions in the form of tabulation by categories and graphical representation. Thirdly, huddle with conceptual similarity in the field and also impart a summary on all resource allocations. In cloud computing environments, there are two players: cloud providers and cloud users. On one hand, providers hold massive computing resources in their large data centres and rent resources out to users on a per-usage basis. On the other hand, there are users who have applications with fluctuating loads and lease resources from providers to run their applications. Further, delivers conclusions by conferring future research directions in the field of cloud computing, such as reduce clouds early on the Internet, combining Resource Allocation, Resource Scheduling and Resource management rather than a Cloud model for providing high-quality results, etc.
