In response to the global climate crisis and the recent energy crisis, Nutanix has sponsored an in-depth report to help business decision-makers not only minimise energy costs but radically cut the carbon footprint of their datacentre assets.
Key findings include:
- Measurable benefits could be achieved across a range of organisations from large scale hyperscalers and managed service providers to large enterprises and small businesses.
- In comparison to traditional 3-tier IT platforms, next generation hyperconverged infrastructures (HCI) could potentially reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint by roughly 27% per year.
- Across the EMEA region HCI transformation has the potential to reduce energy consumption by 56.7 TWh and cut emissions by 14.2 million tonnes of CO²e over the period 2022-2025.
- Large-scale co-location datacentres offer a much lower PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) factor than typical on-premise facilities. Switching these to HCI architectures could potentially boost energy saving towards 30-40%.
