So how can your organization move towards more sustainable practices? While there are many ways to reduce carbon footprint and energy usage, one of the most impactful strategies is to source renewable energy in your data centers. Read this white paper from Digital Realty for a deep look at clean energy, how to acquire it and what to look for in your data center strategy.
It’s been said that “sustainability is most often defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.” Marc Cram, Director of Sales for Server Technology, discusses how data center sustainability is being addressed by the biggest names in the industry, as well as how the three R’s — reduce, reuse, recycle — are playing a role in the sustainability trend in the colocation industry.
A new focus on sustainability, efficiency and waste reduction opens up a wealth of opportunities to save money and use reusability to make key decisions around future data center designs, operations and processes.

This is the final entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier special report series that explores how Gallium Nitride, or GaN, is showing significant benefits for data center equipment refreshes. This post provides a primer for leveraging GaN products in your business, and how to get started improving power efficiency.
This is the third entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier special report series that explores how Gallium Nitride, or GaN, is showing significant benefits for data center equipment refreshes. This post covers how data centers can decrease OPEX using GaN power conversion, as well as use cases that illustrate the benefits of GaN.
The benefits of gallium nitride (GaN) technologies can best be understood by exploring four “pillars” normally used to vet power converter technologies.
This is the first entry in a four-part Data Center Frontier special report series that explores how forefront Gallium Nitride, or GaN technologies, are showing significant benefits for data center refreshes. This first article sets the stage and discusses the state of today’s data center in regards to efficiency and data center design, including inclusion of more power-efficient solutions.
Power efficiency in terms of power supplies and data center power systems within other equipment is an area sometimes deprioritized during refresh cycles. But times are changing. Download the new Data Center Frontier Special Report, courtesy of transphorm, to explore how GaN technologies show significant benefits for data center refreshes.
All too often, data center users enter new markets and are greeted with unpleasant surprises on their energy spending. Download the new white paper from Stream Data Centers that covers the ins and outs of capacity energy markets for data centers, as well as the most practical ways to address your data center and colocation energy needs.
The data center and colocation industry is a small segment of the IT sector, but represents a large portion of the power consumption. In this edition of Voices of the Industry, Kevin Hagen, of Iron Mountain, outlines the evolution of renewable energy use in the data center and colocation industry.
