The green data center is certainly an evolving solution. As architects focused on data center design, the following are design aspects that we are seeing and implementing in our data centers today.
The proliferation of technology, data generation, digital consumption, and connected devices will continue to expand the data center market. This growth will only continue to place additional pressures on data center designers and operators to pursue more efficient solutions that reduce energy consumption and lower operational costs. As data centers rise in public and governmental exposure, corporate responsibility and environmental expectations are solidifying as drivers of the end solution. While reducing energy consumption may be the primary focus, reduction of the overall environmental impact is what makes it green.
