Cloud computing has been highly considered by both educational and business sectors. These considerations include the need of improving the Quality of Services (QoS) provided in different aspects such as time, best performance, and cost effective. This paper aims to investigate and define the considerable challenges facing trusted and cost-effective resource allocation in cloud computing environments. In addition, it reviews and critiques existing optimisation works for resource allocation in terms of solutions and approaches to address the existing challenges. After that, it will provide some investigations and results using CloudSim as a cloud simulator explaining some implications that have been found and how they affect the allocation processes. Also, it shows which allocation policies have been used and what configurations that have been set for each components to perform in these examinations. Finally, it will suggest some future work with possible modifications and settings that could help to inspect and what allocation policies that possible to apply to facilitate the allocation operations.
