Along with the energy consideration, the environment in which the source lies must not pose to the stability of the energy supplied to the host platform. Nearness from the source to the premises must also be highly considered to ensure that no extra cost is incurred while targeting particular source of energy (Floracks 101).Virtualization of datacenters has been on the rise for various companies for the last few years probably because of the long-term beneficial implications. The cloud could be termed as software powered by superior hardware, pools of virtualized hardware running on software that enables to decommission resources and offer them the ability to provision within a short period. It offers great flexibility and more leverage to businesses, in this model for instance, the provider owns the entire assets, physical infrastructure, and allows companies to buy access to the resources for billing on bandwidth, storage or access time. Virtualization on a private cloud is a considerable option where an individual entity hosts the entire resources on a virtualized platform for exclusive utilization by the subject company. Among the beneficial implications include manageable resources, reduced overheads and eases on security management, compliance, and privacy. Other related risks are also easier to manage such as those emanating from shared resources and multi-tenant base but require significant ongoing and up-front investment by the firm’s private cloud consumer. Virtualized platforms allow users to provision quickly on new virtual machines above the existing pool of resources. Virtualization promises elasticity of computing and security of dedicated the involved servers and provides the ability to extensively optimize the utilization of computing resources, also applies to the single applications (Floracks 101).A combination of economic
