Cloud data centers have become indispensable infrastructure for computing and data storage that facilitate the development of diversified services offered by the cloud. These data centers consume enormous amounts of electrical energy to process the cloud services resulting in large amount of CO2 emissions, high operational cost, and affecting the lifetime of hardware equipments. This necessitates the development of efficient energy management techniques in cloud data centers for both economic and environmental standpoints. Energy management at data centers can be static or dynamic.
