Carbon cutting in the Data Center
According to data from the independent research agency Software.org, there will be at least 50 billion devices connected by the end of this year (2020). Factors such as increased interconnectivity, growth of the Internet of Things (Iot) and development of Industry 4.0 mean that the demand for data and energy required for data generation, and the consequent need for space and energy for their storage, continue to grow at an incessant pace.
According to research by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative (Gesi- international strategic partnership of ICT companies and industry associations engaged in the creation and promotion of technologies and practices that promote economic sustainability) Data Centers consume about 3% of the world’s energy produced daily, generating at least 2% of the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. The environmental impact generated in this circumstance is equivalent to that caused by the aviation industry.
