11.00 -11.50 Massively increasing data storage – how shall the climate footprint from the data centers be stopped?
We shop for food through our mobile phones, watch Netflix in the evening and communicate through our mobile, activities that all start a process in a data center somewhere in the world. Already by 2020 the number of connected devices are expected to increase from 9 to 50 billion. All this data is of course consuming enormous amounts of energy. In 2025 data centres are expected to be responsible for 5.5 percent of the worlds total CO2-emissions, and 20 percent of all energy consumption. What challenges will this lead to and what demands will be put in the future on sustainable, secure and climate smart data services? Here you will, amongst other things, get a checklist of what you need to consider to ensure that your business critical data is managed and stored as safely as possible.
