    Abstract :

    With the rapid pace changes in technology and hence the world there is a humongous amount of data generation and data storage and hence energy consumption taking place which has led to the evolution of going green with computing and so with IT – hence the term Green IT or Green Computing is growing essential. Green computing is about using computing and/or IT more efficiently to achieve minimization in energy consumption, and therefore, considering the acquisition of energy efficient IT solutions. Green IT also known as Green Computing is basically the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, computer related hardware, electronics waste, servers, and associated subsystems. The goal of green computing is to reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product’s lifetime, minimizing the usage of minerals and other natural products required during manufacturing of hardware and promote the recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste. Research to accomplish these goals is being continued by working hard into key areas such as making the use of computers as energy efficient as possible, and designing algorithms and systems for efficiency related computer technologies. This paper presents the concept of green computing along with the implementation of the technology.
