Optimization of Operating Systems towards Green Computing

Appasami .G, Suresh Joseph.K


Green Computing is one of the emerging computing technology in the field of computer science engineering and technology to provide Green Information Technology (Green IT / GC). It is mainly used
to  protect  environment,  optimize  energy  consumption  and  keeps  green  environment. Green  computing also refers to environmentally sustainable computing. In recent years, companies in the computer industry have come to realize that going green is in their best interest, both in terms of public relations and reduced costs. Information and communication technology (ICT) has now become an important department for the success of  any  organization. Making  IT  “Green”  can not  only  save money but  help  save our world by making it a better place through reducing and/or eliminating wasteful practices. In this paper we focus on green computing by optimizing operating systems and scheduling of hardware resources. The objectives of the green computing are human power, electrical energy, time and cost reduction with out polluting the
environment while developing  the  software. Operating System  (OS) Optimization  is very  important  for Green  computing,  because  it  is  bridge  for  both  hardware  components  and Application  Soft wares. The
important Steps for green computing user and energy efficient usage are also discussed in this paper.
