Cloud computing can help to reduce your business’s impact on the environment. Despite data centres increasing their computing output by six times from 2010 to 2018 and their energy consumption only rose by 6%. Click here to read information from The New York Times.
For many businesses it promises low total cost of ownership, high scalability and an easy pay structure. Leading IT companies are focusing their energies on the cloud computing to improve operations.
Embrace cloud computing
It is good for your business and the planet. A recent study conducted in the US reveals that cloud computing offers solutions for businesses to be greener because it will cut costs. Some of the key findings are:
- US companies plan to increase cloud computing from 10% of their overall IT budget today to almost 70% in the future.
- Cloud computing reduces carbon emissions by almost 86 million metric tons per year by 2020.
- Annual economy wide energy savings could be more than $12 billion per year by 2020 and that is in the US alone!
Large companies adopting the cloud can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by 30%. The good news is, small businesses can even save more energy than the larger companies – up to 90%.
Access to the networked resources provided by ‘clouds’ enables companies to enter markets without having to meet the capital costs of building their own computer infrastructure. This is especially valid in the present sluggish market. We are seeing an explosion in the number of portable devices with limited storage capacity. Access to cloud computing enables clients to add functions and lower costs to their system, which would normally be associated with much larger machines.
The bottom line: Going green allows higher hardware usage because applications can run on less energy, power and cooling. This means a lighter and happier mother earth.
