Go Green IT with Data-driven Intelligence

Global Data Center Consumption (Source: International Energy Agency)

Why We Need Green IT for Cloud

According to estimation on GO CLIMATE,  the carbon footprint of servers are:

  • Cloud server using 100% green electricity:
    160 kg CO2e / year and server
  • Cloud server using non-green electricity:
    458 kg CO2e / year and server
  • On premise or data center-server using 100% green electricity:
    320 kg CO2e / year and server
  • On premise or data center-server using non-green electricity:
    916 kg CO2e / year and server

100% Green electricity and the adoption of Cloud resources are keys to lowering carbon footprint and going Green IT.

 

It is recommended that the tech enterprises adopt a policy of secure, 100% sustainably-powered servers for data centers (for example: solar, wind, hydro or nuclear), 100% sustainable locations for new Cloud instances (e.g. use Azure, Google Cloud or the sustainable AWS in specific regions) and transition existing VMs there as soon as possible.

How to Make Greener Operations

  • Efficiency in Cooling

Since cooling takes a big part of a data center’s energy consumption, scaling the cooling based on server workloads is crucial measures instead of the same cooling for all.

  • Consolidation of the Servers

Instead of powering on servers for low workloads, consolidating the workloads and hibernating inactive servers for a data center to maximize the usage of each server is much greener.

How Federator.ai Helps Go Green

Federator.ai, an AIOps platform, utilizes its patented ML-based prediction engine to accurately predict the workloads and direct resources only to active workloads in Kubernetes environments. With the help of Federator.ai, enterprises can lower carbon emissions without diminishing performance by reducing idle resources by up to 35%. Federator.ai intelligently allocates the right-sized resources with application resilience in mind. With less idle compute resources, less consumption of electricity, and less production of heat, total carbon emissions can be reduced by up to 59%.

Also, Federator.ai requires no additional sensors/data collections because it leverages the software sensors/agents to acquire operation metrics from the integrated monitoring services, , which makes true Green AI.
