Assuring Efficient Performance anad Governance Across Application Hosting Environment

 

A recent research estimates that data centers globally consume nearly 200 billion kwh of energy annually, emitting over 150 million metric tons of GHG emissions.  

 

With enterprises seeking to develop new business models and opportunities through increased digitization and pandemic-induced virtualization, this trend will only be exponentially increasing. 

 

As the quantum of energy used by data centers continues to multiply every four years, the fastest-growing carbon footprint of within the IT sector, both operators and consumers of data centers’ services are concerned about operational efficiency. 

 

Did you know that Turbonomic customers enjoy a payback period of less than 6 months and average 471% ROI?

 

For the data centers and for enterprises reliant on these data centers to be efficient and resource-optimal, there are a few critical challenges that need to be addressed:

  • How to improve energy efficiency of data center operations?
  • How to accurately match infrastructure supply with application demand? 
  • And, how to create a sustainable value chain?

 

Join this exclusive webinar and gain valuable insights into the sustainability journey of IBM:

  • IBM has slashed Carbon Emission by nearly 40%
  • 47% of electricity consumed by IBM in 2021 came from renewable sources

This Questex hosted webinar will also showcase EDF’s focus on renewable energy and how Turbonomic helped to drive greater efficiencies within their Data Center operations.
