Cloud-Computing is a structure that allows users to connect with the server and use hardware, software, and other resources. In cloud technology, the software and resources will be shared on the remote servers. The client can access the resources from the server with a high-speed internet connection. The goal of green-cloudcomputing is to reduce the consumption of energy and carbon footprints. Data Centers are in huge demand, and there is a lot of power consumption. Micro and Macro metrics are the two metrics are used to evaluate the consumption of energy. Virtualization, best allocation, and scheduling mechanisms reduce power consumption and decrease the release of harmful gases. Cloud balancing techniques can have used to reduce the consumption of resources, which will result in a decrease in the consumption of energy and decrease the carbon footprint. Some research challenges on green cloud computing are mentioned along with solutions for those challenges, which will help in reducing the power consumption and heat generated while processing.
