Research has shown that digitized processes produce less carbon emissions than their analog counterparts. Data centers provide the infrastructure that enables this digitization to occur and serve as the foundation for the energy-efficient enterprise.
- The transition from physical, “offline” processes to digital, online processes is referred to as digitization or dematerialization.
- Research has shown that digitizing or “dematerializing” processes significantly decreases carbon dioxide emissions.
- Data centers enable dematerialization because they provide the infrastructure required to power, cool, and connect the IT systems that process digital transactions.
- Large, modern, commercial-grade data centers utilize the latest technologies and provide energy savings through economies of scale.
