The future of data centers is green

Swedish researcher Anders Andrae predicts that by 2025, data centers will amount to ICT’s largest share of global electricity production at 33 percent, followed by smartphones (15 percent) networks (10 percent) and TV (9 percent). This new data needs to be secured, cooled, and transmitted effectively. Upgrading data centers can also mean expanding physical space for new racks and other equipment – all of which must be lit, cooled, and secured.It therefore stands to reason that operating a server network, along with fans, consoles, monitors, lights, and cooling systems 24/7 requires large amounts of energy. And since data centers require continuous uptime, many systems run around the clock, regardless of whether they’re being used or not.
