The fastest way to sustainable digital transformation is likely to be cloudy

October 29, 2020

Cloud computing – large-scale, shared IT infrastructure available over the internet – is transforming the way corporate IT services are delivered and managed. There are several key factors enabling cloud computing to lower energy use and carbon emissions from IT. These include dynamic provisioning that can reduce wasted computing resources through better matching of server capacity with actual demand, multi-tenancy that can flatten relative peak loads by serving large numbers of organisations and users on shared infrastructure and improved server utilisation by operating servers at higher utilisation rates. Beyond the commonly cited benefits of cloud computing, such as cost savings and increased agility, it has the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of many business applications.
