Cloud computing is a cost effective infrastructure that affords users to run various applications without the necessity to deploy necessary hardware to run those applications. The virtualization technology provides this opportunity. Even small organizations started to use cloud solutions for their customers. Cloud can host a variety of applications that run for seconds to several hours in pay we use manner. This led to the establishment of more data centers that resulted in high energy consumption to process those cloud services. High energy consumption causes environmental drawbacks like carbon emission which results in Global warming and also decreases the revenue. This work discusses problems of high power/energy consumption. There are several techniques to minimise the power consumed in the data centers and they are briefly discussed in this work.
