The present-day methods of green cloud computing are focused principally on data processing and data storage. However, the transmission and switching elements are often not considered in green cloud computing. Techniques are presented herein that support a mathematical model which focuses on the end-to-end cloud environment including, for example, transmission, switching, data storage, and data processing elements. In particular, energy efficiency, a minimal carbon footprint, optimal capital expenditures, and the fewest operating expenditures are the need of hour for both middle-scale and massive-scale cloud environments and data centers. The presented techniques encompass a mathematical model along with elaborating use cases to successfully meet all the objectives noted above.
