This timely and provocative film explores the vital role that data centres fill to support the billions of connected devices currently deployed in the world and the related environmental impacts of these rapidly expanding data centres. The main environmental impacts explored in this film include greenhouse gas emissions, power consumption, and e-waste.
While companies certainly care about total cost of ownership (TCO) savings, have they thought about TCE - the Total Cost to the Environment?
Supermicro CEO and President, Charles Liang stated: "As a leader in the industry, we want to provide exactly the best for our customers to help them save money and TCO. We also want to make sure we contribute to our environment, contribute to our only Mother Earth."
Intel Fellow and IT CTO, Shesha Krishnapura stated: "When you talk to the CIOs of the world, what you hear is digital transformation and most of the focus is on the application side. But what these people miss out is the transformation at the infrastructure level."
Research Scientist at Chief Computational Information Sciences and Technology Office, NASA Goddard Space Center, Daniel Duffy stated: "These compute resources take a lot of energy, so we try to be as green and as efficient as possible."
NASA Global Modelling and Assimilation Office, Lesley Ott stated: "We don't want to be researching greenhouse gases and then be responsible for massive emissions of them."
These companies have joined forces to implement innovative new Resource-Saving data centre technologies developed by Supermicro that provide TCO savings while also limiting TCE.
