Easwar Krishna Iyer, Sajal Mehrotra, Anubha Sharma, Bhavana Rao


Till about the turn of the new millennium, the global energy consumption pattern had only economic underpinnings. From an economic issue, the focus has moved to an environmental issue today. It wouldn’t be too long before energy becomes an emotional issue. This paper has energy conservation as its core focus. It mathematically models the implementation of Green IT practices using Cloud Computing with the Datacenter Ecosystem taken as the basic unit of analysis. The paper posits that the energy consumption of the Datacenter Ecosystem will keep falling with higher and higher cloud adoption.

Keywords: Green IT, Cloud computing, Datacenter ecosystems, Strategic reduction, Energy conservation, Utilization, EC2
