Cloud computing, a green alternaitve

  1. 1. It is a green alternative but also would be the best one. Cloud Computing, a green alternative.
  2. 2. To understand the potential advantage of cloud computing in more detail, it Is important to look at the different factors contributing to a lower per-user carbon footprint. These factors apply across cloud providers in general and are relevant for many on-premise scenaries. These primary levers are heavily influenced by four key factors, let's see them. The comparatively smaller carbon footprint of cloud computing is a consequence of both, improvement of efficient infrastructure and a reduced need for its infrastructure to support a given user base. Cloud Computing as a green technology
  3. 3. 01 Dynamic Provisioning Cloud providers can reduce the inefficiency caused by over­ provisioning, this would help with the optimizing number of active servers to support a given user base.
  4. 4. 02 Multi-tenancy Major cloud providers are able to serve, simultaneously, millions of users at thousands of companies on a massive shared infrastructure. By operating multi­tenant environments, cloud providers can reduce overhead for on­boarding and managing individual organizations and users.
  5. 5. 03 Server Utilization Cloud computing can drive energy savings by improving server utilization. As large­scale cloud providers tend to run their infrastructure higher and with more stable utilization levels than corresponding on­premise operations, the same tasks can be performed with far fewer servers.
  6. 6. 04 Data Center Efficiency Data center design­the way facilities are physically constructed, equipped with IT and supporting infrastructure, and managed­ has a major impact on the energy use for a given amount of computing power. A common measure of how efficiently a data center uses its power is called power usage effectiveness ratio.
  7. 7. Make your content green too! Hardware comes with an “embodied” carbon footprint from the energy associated with producing, distributing and disposing of equipment. Cloud providers are more likely to take an active role in tailoring hardware components to the specific needs of the services they run. Cloud computing drives the efficiency of IT with unprecedented economies of scale, high sophistication and strong incentives to create ongoing efficiencies and continue improving while protecting the environment.
