Abstract: Cloud computing has led to the tremendous growth of IT organizations, which serves as the means of delivering services to large number of consumers globally, by providing anywhere, anytime easy access to resources and services. The primary concern over the increasing energy consumption by cloud data centers is mainly due to the massive emission of greenhouse gases, which contaminate the atmosphere and tend to worsen the environmental conditions. The major part of huge energy consumption comes from large servers, high speed storage devices and cooling equipment, present in cloud data centers. These serve as the basis for fulfilling the increasing need for computing resources. These in turn bestow additional cost of resources. The goal is to focus on energy savings through effective utilization of resources. This necessitates the need for developing a green-aware, energy-efficient framework for cloud data center networks. The Software Defined Networking (SDN) are chosen as they aid in studying the behaviour of networks from the overall perspective of software layer, rather than decisions from each individual device, as in case of conventional networks. The central objective of this paper is dedicated to survey on various existing SDN based energy efficient cloud data center networks.
