  • With the increased trend of moving towards the consolidation of computing in larger facilities, and with the rise of paradigms such as Cloud, Smart Cities, and IoT, data centers have been highlighted as a major energy consumer. Yet, data centers exist purely to host IT services, which on average tend to account for the largest part of the overall facility energy consumption. Frequent refresh of IT hardware has emerged as a trend in hyper-scale data centers. However, the wider environmental… CONTINUE READING
