Energy Management Models for Efficient Cloud Environment: A Review

Amanjot Kaur, Amritpal Kaur


Cloud Computing is an evolving area of efficient utilization of computing resources. Data centres accommodating Cloud applications ingest massive quantities of energy, contributing to high functioning expenditures and carbon footprints to the atmosphere. Hence, Green Cloud computing resolutions are required not only to save energy for the environment but also to decrease operating charges. In this paper, we discussed the balance between server energy consumption, network energy consumption, and end-user energy consumption, to present a fuller assessment of the benefits of cloud computing. The issue of energy consumption in information technology equipment has been receiving increasing attention in recent years and there is growing recognition of the need to manage energy consumption across the entire information and communications technology (ICT) sector. Various architectures have been discussed for energy efficiency. The central objective of this paper is to initiate research and development of energy-management models and strategies for data centres in such a way that brings Cloud computing as a maintainable ecological conventional technology for achieving cost-effective, organized, and technical enhancement for future generations.

Keywords: Cloud Computing, ICT, Energy consumption, Green Cloud Computing.
