Workshop Title: Green Cloud Computing and the Way Forward

Description : In cloud computing, data centers play a vital role. The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in the significance of data centers, and they are now regarded as the backbone of the modern economy. In fact, by 2030, the cloud will serve as the pillar for virtually every financial transaction and user interaction with data, which will be due to the widespread adoption of crypto digital currencies, growing use of 3G technology, internet-of-everything (IoE), virtual reality (VR)/ augmented reality (AR) solutions, big data utilization, and artificial intelligence (AI). One of the most significant challenges confronting cloud computing is energy efficiency and green energy utilization. Therefore, the workshop will be devoted to green energy initiatives and defining a way forward for the development of green data centers. The goal of this effort is to highlight the importance of green cloud data centers and propose a way to efficiently utilize available resources and reduce energy consumption while increasing green energy utilization. At the end of the session, you will also have hands-on experience to get started with Amazon Web Services (AWS) which is one of the leading players in the cloud market arena.
