Considerations for Running a Green Data Center
Over 7 billion trees that would have to be planted to offset the carbon emitted by inefficient data centers can now be used to sequester carbon from other sources. Worldwide, data centers are becoming larger, more efficient but consume more power than ever before. There are several opportunities for data center operators to reduce the environment's impact while maintaining agreed-upon service levels.
The third annual Supermicro Data Centers & The Environment report looks at how data center operators are currently planning to increase efficiency and reduce E-waste. Geographically, there are some differences in how operators are attacking this worldwide challenge.
Some of the survey highlights include:
- Over half of the respondents are considering upgrading to more efficient servers.
- Many more respondents are aware of their data center PUE as compared to the 2019 survey.
- Larger organizations worldwide are following accepted E-waste practices more closely than smaller organizations.
