5 Top Green Cloud Computing Techniques That Would Work Miracles!

By CIOReview | Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Green Computing refers to the efficient use of computers and other technologies while respecting the environment through energy efficient peripherals, improved resources use and reduce electronic waste.

Fremont, CA: Green cloud computing attributes to the efficient and environment-friendly use of computers and related resources.  It is more or less than a solution that allows companies and users to use the cloud and its perks fully while alleviating the chances for negative environmental impact and other potential risks. Now the companies across the globe are busy developing methods to accomplish their green cloud computing goals.

Here are some highly effective techniques that would revolutionize the future of green cloud computing architecture.


Virtualization is a technique in cloud computing that enhances virtual machine management and energy efficiency through sharing a single physical instance of a resource or an application among an array of customers and organizations at one time. One of the primary goals of almost all forms of virtualization is the maximal utilization of the available system resources in an environment-friendly way.

Some of the advantages of virtualization which directly affects the efficiency and furthers the environment include:

1. Helps in abolishing the planned downtime by migrating virtual machines from one physical server to another.
2. Dynamically balance workloads across a server group and provide automatic failover for virtualized applications.
3. Helps the server group to maximize their ability to share resources.
4. Facilitates the better monitoring and management of the resource allocation.

Nano Data Centres

Nano Data Centres are newly developed distributed computing platform which uses ISP- controlled home gateways to offer computing and storage services. This platform is more energy efficient than conventional data centres.

Mentioned below are some key advantages of Nano Data Centres which make them unique from their conventional counterparts.

1. Helps in reducing the costs of heat dissipation.
2. High service proximity.
3. Self scalability or self-adaptation capacity.

Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling

Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling is a technique that reduces the power and energy consumption of the processors and being used widely in conjunction with frequency scaling. The appropriate implementation of this technique will leverage the resource utilization and deduce the energy consumption by the data centres and thus lead to a situation where the number of carbon footprints are less and hence contribute towards the accomplishment of green cloud computing goals.
