Abstract Cloud computing paradigm is emerging as the solution to all the infrastructure setup problems of IT industry. But the thriving demand of cloud infrastructure has increased the energy consumption of the data centers drastically. As the energy consumption of the data center rises, it leads us to high carbon emissions which are dangerous for the environment. In this paper, we propose a green cloud broker for resource procurement problem by considering the metrics of energy efficiency and environmental friendly operations of the cloud service provider. We use mechanism design methods to decide the allocation and payment for the submitted job dynamically. We perform experiments and show the results of comparisons of energy consumption and emission of greenhouse gases between the allocation decided by the proposed green cloud broker and a without taking the green metric into consideration.
