Sustainable Data Center Technology

1 hour
With a growing number of Fortune 500 companies committing to taking climate action, the need for evaluating sustainable technologies has never been greater. Data centers are responsible for a significant and ever-increasing portion of an enterprise's emissions, posing a key challenge for companies striving to achieve carbon-neutral operations. This briefing will cover the areas an enterprise should consider to make strategic and tactical decisions in their data centers and cloud partnerships.


Sustainability in the data center is a highly complex and fast-moving domain, which is why developing a strategic plan and evaluating enabling technologies is integral to the overall corporate ESG strategy. 

At WWT, we believe that sustainability and carbon-neutral operations are strategic goals of a responsible enterprise that can be achieved with efficient operational models and cost-effective designs. 

During this briefing, we'll discuss: 

  • What is data center sustainability, and why it matters
  • Economics of sustainable data center designs
  • Building a Technology Strategic Long-Range Plan that includes sustainability
    • Decisions based upon industry insight
    • Mapping data center evolution into a sustainability framework

When you're ready to take the next step on the path to a sustainable data center, we can help you assess the current state of your data center, map systems, and identify workloads and initial areas for optimization.
