Abstract: Cloud computing is an internet based computing, where shared resources and information are provided to computers or other devices on demand. It has now become a highly demanded service or utility due to the advantages of high computing power, cheap cost of services, high performance, scalability, accessibility as well as availability. Cloud computing of course has some pitfalls which need to be given proper attention to make cloud computing services more reliable and user friendly. Some of the major drawbacks are underestimating cloud sprawl, failing to monitor performance, perils of platform lock-in mismanaged performance guarantees, data jurisdiction, data storage area, possible down time, inflexibility, etc. In this study, we have studied about the power consumption so as to improve the efficiency of a computing system. Here, we detect the requests and then the placement of virtual machine takes place, thereby improving the performance of the computing system.
