Research: Data center users don’t value energy efficiency

In its first annual “Data Centers and the Environment” report, Supermicro found that many businesses underestimate the importance of efficiency: only 28 percent of respondents consider environmental issues in the selection of data center technologies, and just nine percent indicated energy efficiency as the top criterion when setting data center design strategy, prioritizing security, performance and connectivity instead. In addition, 12 percent said they currently have no e-waste recycling policy in place, which means decommissioned hardware will end up in a landfill along with general waste. The researchers noted that e-waste accounts for 70 percent of toxic waste in the US.
