Toward sustainable, energy-efficient 'green data centers'

AS economies become increasingly digitized, the importance of a reliable digital infrastructure increases. Data infrastructure, including data centers and cloud solutions, is the foundation for vital services, from cell phone networks to the operation of schools, hospitals and computer systems.

On the other hand, the growing digital sector contributes significant carbon emissions, while data centers essentially require large amounts of power, which can put a strain on local resources. This is where green data centers come in. A green data center is a facility designed to have minimal environmental impact while maintaining the high level of computing power required to store and process data.
