If your organisation is working towards net zero, eliminating the emissions from your own IT operations is a significant part of that.
And yes, for many, cloud computing is already a cleaner and welcome improvement on the original. Less hardware running fewer workloads means less electricity consumed.
The only thing is, those cloud data centres still need electricity to power them. That’s where greener, sustainable cloud computing comes in, replacing all that fossil fuel-based grid energy with renewable resources.
More computing for less carbon. That’s winning all round.
