When it Comes to the Cloud, the Opportunities for Datacenter Efficiency are Huge!

ReadWriteWeb published a fantastic research study and infographic on Friday from ABB on the current power usage of global datacenters and the opportunities for improvement.

Here's a few of the interesting stats identified in the infographic:

  • 1 Datacenter consumes the equivalent of 25,000 U.S. houses in electricity
  • 5.75 million servers are installed annually
  • 10% of installed servers are un-utilized
  • Cooling equipment makes up 30% of total energy usage
  • Virtualization can reduce power demand by 27%

A big thanks to RWW for sharing and ABB for putting together! This one is definitely worth reviewing and figuring out how you can improve your datacenter operations to capture these gains:
