As IoT and 5G applications increase the amount of data stored, companies are adding infrastructure at the edge to store and analyze data, as well as network connections to transport data to the core. However, Schneider Electric estimates data center energy consumption to be 2,700 terawatt-hours by 2040, with 60% of this being consumed at distributed sites, which means more equipment and more power. This implies that companies around the world must work to improve their carbon footprint and sustainability profile while the increasing amount of decentralized IT raises their environmental impact. In this white paper, you will explore how to implement the sustainability of edge computing.
1. Distributed IT and edge computing are growing in various forms.
2. Challenges faced by various companies to realize the sustainability of edge computing.
3. Measures of Enterprise Edge Computing Sustainability Maturity.
