Survey on Energy Efficiency in Cloud ComputingAuthor : Lakshmi Digra and Sharanjeet Singh
Volume 8 No.1 January-March 2019 pp 18-21
Data centers are serious, energy-hungry infrastructures that can run large scale Internet based services. Energy ingesting representations are essential in designing and improving energy-efficient operations to reduce excessive energy consumption in data centers. This paper presents a survey on Energy efficiency in data centers, importance of energy efficiency. It also describes the increasing demands for data center in worldwide and the reasons for data centers energy inefficient? In this paper we define the challenges for implementing changes in data centers and explain why and how the energy requirements of data centers are growing. After that we compare the German data center market at international level and we see the energy consumption of data centers and servers in Germany from 2010 -2016.
