The acceleration of global demand to store, manage, and extract insight from data has led to a dramatic increase in the number of data centres around the world; from 500,000 in 2012 to 8,000,000 in 2019.
However, average server utilisation levels are regularly below 50%. Worse still, 30% of all machines installed in data centres are turned on and never used.
YellowDog believes there is already enough computing power in the world. However, there is an unnecessary imbalance between supply and demand of compute.
By 2030, it is predicted that data centres will consume over 10% of the global electricity supply.
According to the latest research, to limit warming to below the 1.5°C target, emissions must be cut by 15% annually.
The environmental impact of data centres should be taken seriously, as should the value they bring to society. Data centres increase connectivity and help to deliver significant innovation and improvement to our society.
A holistic view is needed to ensure data centres continue to be valuable to the planet, without fuelling continued environmental damage.
YellowDog helps businesses access the Best Source of Compute. This Best Source could be based on:
Typically, it will be a complex matrix of multiple factors. On average, YellowDog has 57% less carbon impact than typical data centre solutions for workload management.
