Working with industry-leading cloud providers, Kyocera can provide our customers with expert managed cloud services that cover public and hybrid deployments. Not only can these cloud services enhance your business's productivity and agility whilst reducing costs, but they can also play an important role in making your use of technology more sustainable. Read on to learn why moving your data and applications to the cloud can cut your carbon footprint.
One of the major ways using cloud services can reduce your carbon footprint, and your energy costs, is by reducing the number of on-premises servers you need to run, or getting rid of them altogether.
This doesn't simply shift your emissions elsewhere: According to Microsoft, cloud platforms can be up to 93% more energy efficient and up to 98% more carbon efficient than on-premises solutions.
The cloud providers we partner with are some of the world's largest technology companies. They're putting their enormous resources to work, investing in cutting-edge datacentre technology. For example, new liquid immersion server cooling tech promises to reduce the energy consumption of servers by up to 15% whilst minimising the overall water consumption of datacentres.
Its not just the inherent efficiency of large datacentres, and the cutting-edge technology thats going into enhancing their sustainability even further, that makes cloud computing more sustainable than on-premises. It's also to do with the environmental policies of these global IT industry leaders. Most have set ambitious targets to use 100% renewable energy, to reduce waste, deforestation, water consumption and carbon emissions. As a result, you can be confident that your investment in cloud computing is one that'll only get greener over time.
