The word "sustainability" has become the new "DCIM"; it means something completely different to everyone. Yet, corporations are setting goals (that aren't fully understood) and we in the data center industry are scrambling for actionable direction. Let's have a pragmatic conversation addressing where we collectively are on our sustainability journey, what's on the table, where we're likely headed (carbon accounting), and the tools available that we could be leveraging right now in an actionable way.


  • What is data center sustainability?
  • How can our data center operations be more sustainable, i.e., what could we be doing today?
  • How is the data center industry evolving to facilitate our ability to be more sustainable?
