© 2017 IEEE. The adoption of cloud computing has increased significantly, but this has given rise to the problem of efficient energy usage. The efficient use of energy by data centers and the use of virtual machines can help to minimize cost deadlines, resources, and utilization and execution times. There is a consequent need for different approaches that can reduce energy consumption whilst still achieving the multiple objectives of cloud computing. In this study, we examine a number of different approaches that have been discussed in the recent literature w.r.t. energy-efficient cloud workflow management, and we compare these approaches for energy-efficient usage of data centers and virtual machines. The results show that virtual machine scheduling and virtual machine allocation approaches are the most commonly used approaches that achieve an optimal energy consumption.
