Beyond corporate responsibility, more decision makers are including sustainability and energy efficiency as a key deciding factor when considering the environmental practices of their suppliers. This consideration goes beyond the traditional factors of cost, performance, availability, and security. While we rely on data centers to complete many of our daily business and personal tasks, operating, maintaining, and expanding this critical technology can come with staggering environmental costs.
What makes a data center sustainable?
Simply put, a sustainable data center minimizes its impact on the environment by emphasizing energy efficiency, incorporating renewable energy, conserving water, and reducing as much waste as possible. This presents numerous challenges for the industry, as it is now requires a rethink on how we design, construct and operate data centers sustainably.
Through the introduction of our new CDESS (Certified Data Center Environmental Sustainability Specialist) training course, EPI is delivering a framework that will provide data center professionals with the tools they need to face this challenge with confidence.
