Currently the Cloud computing technology is on the verge of spurring an information revolution in all regions. It offering utility-oriented IT services to users which better suited option than a traditional methods. Cloud has millions of services based on web services. Cloud is very cost effective infrastructure for this web related services. To run and maintain cloud extremely high energy is needed. This tends to increase cost and carbon emission which reduces its efficiency. This paper discusses and analyzes some of the reason which can help in green cloud architecture. This paper includes review of static architecture energy and dynamic architecture energy issues and tries to find method to solve it.
