Clouds are not linear: Unlock the full power of IT infrastructure with circular economic models

Technology drives humanity forward, but it also creates environmental and societal challenges that can’t be ignored. Massive data demand is driving faster refresh cycles responsible for 57m tons of e-waste annually. New hardware manufacturing accounts for 70 per cent of the CO2 emissions tied to the industry. And there are still too many barriers between the broad data center ecosystem and the gear needed for affordable, responsible growth. This presentation will show how circular economic models can deliver outsized financial and sustainability benefits for all.
