How are data centres adapting to be more eco-friendly?

In an environment where consumption of all things appears to be heading skywards, data use, bandwidth and storage requirements are right on trend. With levels of data creation and use now surpassing zettabytes volumes per year, the data centre technology suites that facilitate this compute power need to be carefully controlled.

From the standpoint of an infrastructure supplier, today’s discussions with data centre operators and corporate end users, with owned data centre capability, are framed around increased bandwidth, reduced latency and energy concerns including lower power usage and effective climate control to optimise the compute environment.


‘World’s first’ ocean-powered data centre planned for Scotland

Green developer SIMEC Atlantis Energy has announced plans to construct the world’s first sea-powered hyperscale data centre in the north of Scotland.

The site in the Caithness region of Scotland will be powered by electricity generated from MeyGen, a tidal energy project SIMEC Atlantis launched 2010 at an offshore site between Scotland’s northernmost coast and the island of Stroma.


Delivering Green Edge Data Centres: Addressing the Power Consumption Challenge
According to Gartner by 2025 75% of all enterprise data will be created and processed outside a traditional centralised data centre or cloud – in other words at the edge. As edge infrastructure proliferates and the environmental impact of the ICT industry comes under ever-increasing scrutiny, it is essential that edge facilities make use of... Read More

Data centres in China set to consume more energy than the whole of Australia

The energy consumed by data centres in China is projected to exceed that consumed by Australia last year, a new report has claimed.

Greenpeace East Asia and the North China Electric Power University, which jointly penned the report, estimate the sector’s electricity consumption to jump to 267 terawatt-hours (TWh) by 2023, surpassing the 261 TWh consumed by Australian homes and businesses in 2018.
