Cloud computing has become the bedrock of new, emerging smart technology. It has numerous benefits that encourage small, medium and large enterprises to use other technology through the internet. Despite the benefits of cloud technology, the challenge of the high power consumption rate it incurs as its leverages its promised attributes remains. This paper used mobile agent technology to solve the complexity problem in the data centre system, which happens to be the backbone of cloud technology. The mobile agent was embedded to both servers and switches to regulate their activities and then shut down underutilised components. Mobile agent (Java agent) is the first of its kind used on a cloud network. Our proposed approach saved a significant amount of energy and also improved the entire system performance during runtime.
