Your guide to boosting your datacentre's environmental friendliness

Your guide to boosting your datacentre's environmental friendliness


Industry estimates suggest the datacentre sector is responsible for consuming anywhere between three and five percent of the world’s global energy, putting it on a similar footing – from a power usage perspective – with the aviation market.

As the demand for online services and cloud-based infrastructure and applications continues to grow, the number of datacentres needed to host them will rise accordingly, along with the amount of energy needed to keep them going.

The datacentre sector’s growing energy usage has not gone unnoticed by regulators and environmental lobbyists, prompting operators to rethink how they build, power and manage their facilities with a keen focus on sustainability.

This has prompted some organisations to embrace cutting edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence (to address areas that contribute towards increased energy use) or experiment with building facilities underwater, for example.

In this e-guide, we take a closer look at how the datacentre sector is taking steps to boost its environmental friendliness, and why.
