Green computing is a new term which is defined to make computing systems such as data centers more energy efficient. Using various methods to prepare a green networks and help CO2 reduction has been a major issue for climate change in recent years. This research work is designed to help admins to make a green data centers by using an analytical survey and new tool. The results in this research shows making data centers green is a major concern for data admins, however some of them have limited information about the energy efficiency methods. Finally, Green Data Center (GDC), use case design and graphical user interface recommended for future works in order to assist admins to make their data centers green. This research expected to provide analytical survey towards green computing application for measuring the sustainability of data centers.
