Cloud Computing provides the provision of computational resources on demand via a computer network. Here the term "cloud" represents to the Internet. The main purpose of the Computer is to store and retrieve the information. As cloud computing becomes more widespread, the energy consumption of the network and computing resources that underpin the cloud will grow. The main point related to Cloud Computing is that data centres which are hosting cloud computing applications consume huge amounts of energy, contributing to high operational costs and carbon footprints to the environment. With energy shortages and global climate change leading our concerns these days, the power consumption of data centers has become a key issue. So, the main aims of Green Computing is to reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, and promote recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste. The plan towards green IT should include new electronic products and services with optimum efficiency.

Many governments worldwide have initiated energymanagement programs, such as Energy Star, an international standard for energy-efficient electronic equipment that was created by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 and has now been adopted by several other countries. Energy Star reduces the amount of energy consumed by a product by automatically switching it into "sleep" mode when not in use or reducing the amount of power used by a product when in "standby" mode. Surprisingly, standby "leaking," the electricity consumed by appliances when they are switched off, can represent as much as 12 percent of a typical household's electricity consumption.
