Abstract: In the context of data explosion,traditional cloud computing is faced with the dilemma of insufficient local cloud resources and high expansion cost.However,the newly emerging hybrid cloud combining resource-rich public cloud and data-sensitive private cloud has become a research hotspot and application direction at present.As an attractive paradigm,workflow has been increasing in data scale and computing scale.Therefore,workflow scheduling is a key issue in the direction of hybrid cloud research.For this reason,this paper first makes an in-depth investigation and analysis of workflow scheduling technology in hybrid cloud environment,and then classifies and compares workflow scheduling in hybrid cloud environment:for deadline,for cost,for energy-efficient and for multi-objective constraints.On this basis,the future research directions of workflow scheduling in hybrid cloud environment are analyzed and summarized:workflow scheduling based on Serverless platform,workflow scheduling based on edge server network collaboration,cloud native workflow scheduling based on Argo integration,and workflow scheduling based on fog computing fusion.

Key words: Hybrid cloud, Workflow, Scheduling of resources
