Inaccurate Sensor Data Causes Sustainability Concerns for Data Centers

CHESAPEAKE, VA - Data centers are facing a developing crisis that will impact the future viability and regulatory environment of today’s rapidly-evolving technology market if left unchecked. The industry is now racing to address the situation as environmentally-conscious critics call for regulatory intervention to curb Big Data’s seemingly insatiable consumption of resources that threatens to compromise global sustainability.

Currently, mission critical data centers are responsible for 2% of overall global energy consumption, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). The projection is even more concerning in the US, with data centers accounting for 4% of total energy consumption. IEA projects the industry’s rate of energy consumption will double in the next two years. A new study suggests that for every 30 responses generated by an AI platform, the equivalent of a 16 oz. bottle of water is consumed in the necessary processes that data centers use to functionally cool servers.
