Today cloud data centers are causing critical damage to the surroundings by powering data centers through brown energy (fossil fuel and oil). In order to minimize the carbon emission, energy utilization, operating costs and heat generation at data centers there exists a clear trend for cloud service providers to migrate to green data centers, one step closer to green cloud computing. Load balancing at green data centers, servers and storage components might help in reducing the operating costs and enhance the performance for green data centers. This survey contains a number of static and dynamic algorithms which may also be called as Layer4 (TCP/IP), Layer7 (Application), and global/classic load balancing methods based on the existing state and capacity of particular server nodes available in the network. In this paper, a survey of research papers is conducted based on the algorithm´┐Żs performance parameter for providing a clear and better understanding for the need of energy efficient cloud computing in addition to load balancing algorithm.
