Abstract -
Cloud Computing is considered as an promising technology in which massive amount of resources such as applications, network, computer host, storage and database are assembled in large data centres. They are interconnected through common internet protocols by means of reliable, economical and safe manner to a large number of users of the geographically dispersed area. But these massive-scale data centres are energy hungry data centres which are consuming large amount of energy day by day. It is also a threatening to the environment by emitting increased amount of Carbon dioxide. Hence, an efficient management for energy conservation is arising as a necessity in the cloud environment. An effective way to advance the energy efficiency of such data centers by using Server Consolidation which tries to lessen the sum total of active Physical Machines within a data center. An extensively practiced technology for VM live migration and placement perform as a key for finest consolidation of resources dynamically. This paper proposes a comprehensive study of the dynamic VM placement and its consolidation techniques used in green cloud computing which has the aim for improving the energy efficiency.
