Devices, Data, Waste

Emily Keller

D&S project coordinator Emily Keller discusses the need to address environmental responsibility in device ownership, creation, and discarding.

Achieving maximum efficiency and increasing the use of renewable energy to power data centers are two significant components within a greater web of environmental actions that will be needed to responsibly address the rise of cloud computing in all its visible and invisible instantiations. However, reducing the environmental impacts of the cloud will require a comprehensive approach that looks at each of its connecting pieces, far beyond the data centers that serve as its central hub.
