Aligned Data Centers has increased its sustainability-linked loan from $375 million to $1.75 billion . The additional $1.4 billion in funding provides Aligned with more resources to build data centers for its customers, many of whom are working to reduce their climate impact.
New technologies are driving data center energy demand, while customers seek to reducing energy consumption. Managing rapid growth and improving data center sustainability aren’t mutually exclusive goals, according to Kohler.
Schneider Electric’s Steven Carlini and Andres Vasquez discuss building data centers at the network edge while also meeting sustainability goals.
Can the servers inside a data center make the walls and floors greener? Researchers at Meta and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are using artificial intelligence to reduce the environmental impact of concrete.
Google, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and Meta are among more than 70 companies joining the iMasons Climate Accord, which calls for new steps to track and reduce the environmental impact of the data centers that power the Internet.
Iron Mountain is becoming a larger force in the data center business, building beyond its base of enterprise customers with recent hyperscale wins. The recent acquisition of ITRenew may boost Iron Mountain’s sustainability strategy.
Kao Data was determined to design their new data centers to be as energy efficient as possible. Future Facilities explores how computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations can be used to validate the design of data center cooling systems.
The data center industry, which gave wings and provided thrust to the digital transformation of business and society during a time of tumultuous change, has another urgent, mission-critical responsibility—to our environment. Eric Xie, Software Application Engineer for Intel Data Center Management Solutions, explores the journey to data center sustainability and net zero carbon emissions, including the role that data management solutions will play.
Industry veteran Sean Farney has been involved in some of the most innovative projects in digital infrastructure. In our Earth Day edition of the DCF Show, Sean discusses the progress on data center sustainability, the future of backup power, and converting stores into edge data centers.
The theme for today’s Earth Day 2022 is “Invest in Our Planet.” DCF looks at the investments made by cloud platforms in how they build, operate and power for the data centers – along with innovations from the past year that may help mitigate climate change.
