Abstract: Cloud computing which provides services “on demand” is gaining increasing popularity. However, one of the most challenging problems in cloud computing is to minimize the power consumption in the data centres. The subject of Green Cloud Computing has emerged with the objective of reducing power consumption. While reducing the power consumption it is important to perform the computation in minimum makespan (that is, when all the jobs or Tasks have finished processing). In this paper we propose a technique to achieve the objective of minimizing the power consumption as well as reducing the makespan. To minimize the power consumption, we schedule the tasks on each node utilizing its resources maximum (100%) such that we can reduce the number of nodes used in the data centre. The makespan is reduced using pipeline technique. A method has been proposed and its effectiveness verified by simulating on CloudSim. Results presented in this paper show the advantages of the proposed technique.
