How Cloud Computing Helps Lower Energy Consumption
Using full capacity. When using in-house servers, companies are unlikely to be
utilizing the full capacity. With the cloud, server capacity is shared between a
number of businesses. Resources are allocated so that there are no idle machines,
and utilization rates are much higher. This means fewer machines are needed and less
energy is wasted.
Energy efficiency. While small businesses may not be greatly affected by the
energy savings they could achieve without in-house servers, large data centers see
vast energy savings with a cloud-based system. They also can buy cloud server space
in larger amounts, helping the business save money and energy in the long-term.
Better climate control. Servers get very hot, so it is important to have a
high-quality cooling system, which further adds to the cost of in-house servers.
Since the cloud works on a much larger scale, it can use more efficient layouts to
keep servers cool.
Reducing travel. Cloud computing can reduce the amount of travel required by
staff, as employees can access documents from anywhere with the cloud, allowing for
more flexibility, depending on the business.
