37.1 CLOUD COMPUTING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Energy efficiency is increasingly most important for information and communication technologies. The reasons are the increased use in advanced technologies, increased energy costs and the need to reduce GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. These reasons called for energy-efficient technologies that tend to decrease the overall energy consumption in terms of computation, communications and storage. Cloud Computing has been recently attracted as a promising approach for delivering these advanced technology services by utilizing the data centre resources.

We know that cloud-based computing can reduce IT capital costs, labour costs, enhance ...
