Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Green Data Center Market in the US 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Green Data Center Market in the US: Cisco Systems, Dell, Emerson Network Power, HP, IBM, Rittal, and Schneider Electric
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, Airdale, Black Box Network Service, Eaton, EMC², Fujitsu, General Cables, Green Revolution Cooling, Hitachi, iTRACS, Server Technology.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Many data center operators are currently exploring various approaches to cut down power costs. Renewable energy sources include micro-hydro, biogas fuel cells, solar, wind, and geothermal sources. The use of these renewable sources mainly depends on the location of data center facilities.”
According to the report, in a data center environment, building the shell and the operation of IT servers, UPS, and cooling systems lead to the emission of CO2. Increased use of fossil fuels for electricity generation results in increased CO2 emissions. Data centers that are powered by coal-generated electricity emit more CO2 compared to others.
Further, the report states that many leading organizations such as Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Intel, and Apple have established data centers in the country that are powered by renewable energy sources. Many data centers consume megawatts of electricity and emit tons of carbon every year. Also, the cost of building a data center facility is up to 25% of the total IT budgets of an organization, including the installation of IT equipment.
