A Renewed Focus on Sustainability: Optimizing Data Center Operations to Address Rising Energy Costs

Published November 17, 2022 by Spectra Logic

According to the International Energy Agency[1], data centers in 2021 consumed 220-320 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity, or around 1% of global electricity demand. And while data center electric consumption globally has only grown moderately overall despite strong demand for data center services, countries with expanding data center markets are seeing rapid growth. Moreover, rapid growth in large data center workloads has resulted in a 10 to 30 percent increase in energy use in this segment over the past several years. Emerging services and technologies such as streaming, cloud, gaming, blockchain, machine learning and virtual reality are poised to further boost demand for data services. Read More
