Late last year, COP26 saw world leaders commit to new environmental pledges designed to keep global temperature rises below 1.5°C. Businesses are now considering how they can be instrumental in achieving these targets. At Nybble, we understand the importance of developing solutions that consider our environment. This is one of the many reasons we strive to set our customers up with the benefits of cloud computing solutions. Nybble can help your company reach your ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) goals to reduce your carbon footprint, whilst also maximising your productivity through cloud computing solutions.
What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence – over the Internet. Cloud computing allows organisations to convert large upfront capital costs into small manageable operating costs. This ensures you have convenient, on-demand network access to a broad pool of shared resources.
The benefits of cloud services
• Shorten IT purchasing and IT upgrade cycles.
• Increase scalability.
• Allows almost instantaneous change.
• Promotes innovation and collaboration.
• Frees-up physical space, and resources.
• Connects and enables anytime, anywhere operations.
How can this reduce your carbon footprint?
Whilst there are many clear benefits that cloud computing is the most optimal route for your business to follow, it also helps to reduce your carbon footprint as we work together in a quest to become net zero and do our bit to help save the planet.
Environmental benefits of cloud computing
• Reduces energy consumption.
• Powered by renewable energy.
• Reduces greenhouse gases.
• Creates dematerialisation.
• Better allocation of resources.
The first way that cloud computing helps to reduce carbon emissions is that it reduces the amount of energy your IT systems consume. It is estimated that the average cloud data centre uses 50% less electricity than on-premises hosting. Not only is this beneficial for your business and the environment right now, it is also a figure that is rising, ensuring your data centre is becoming more eco-friendly, whilst saving you costs, year upon year. When setting up a private data centre, companies often have a low utilisation rate, as equipment has been purchased and set up in anticipation of usage spikes on the server. With cloud hosting, this is not a problem, as cloud computing consolidates machine use to operate servers at high utilisation rates, meaning that you only use what is demanded from your server, therefore increasing efficiency, and further saving electricity.
Another way that cloud computing can help your business reduce its carbon footprint and strike towards our goal of becoming net zero is through regular cost efficient and more environmentally friendly upgrades. An on-premises, traditional data centre tends to be used for long periods of time before being upgraded or replaced, although when this upgrade does come, it can come at a very large cost for the business, whilst also utilising large amounts of power. Adapting to cloud computing results in regular updates at a much cheaper cost, ensuring that you always have the most up-to-date technology available, whilst also saving costs for your business without having to conduct large installations each time.
As well as saving money through updates of servers, the benefits of cloud computing in regularly updating your infrastructure will ensure that you stay up to date with the continuous cloud computing energy storage updates. This consequently means that your business infrastructure will be industry leading in how efficiently you are able to operate whilst saving large amounts of electricity, therefore ensuring you are cutting your electricity costs and reducing carbon emissions.
