Cloud computing is gaining importance in the present day world with increased usage of computers and computing power. Cloud computing deals with a number of virtual machines linked to various data centers spread across a cloud. While cloud computing techniques/algorithms facilitate many advantages to the user community, it also penalizes in terms of energy consumption and quality of service. In the context of realizing a unique cloud computing technique/algorithm, the paper presents a summary of the work done and the need for a greener cloud computing technique/algorithm which satisfies minimum energy consumption, minimum carbon emission and maximum quality of service.
