Abstract – In cloud computing various services are delivered to users over the internet. Cloud users are increasing day by day which has compelled the cloud service provider to open more data centers for hosting their services efficiently. The growing demand of Cloud computing has increased the energy consumption of cloud data centers dramatically. High energy consumption not only increases the operational cost but also reduces the profit margin of cloud service providers and affects the environment by its carbon emission. So, in order to make cloud computing an eco-friendly technology some energy-efficient solutions are required. This paper discusses the key issues present in green cloud computing.

Keywords – Cloud Computing, Green Cloud Computing, Virtualization
