Balancing the need for substantial data infrastructure with more eco-friendly policies should be top of all organizational to-do lists, and creating a specific data center decarbonization strategy will be key. This will range from improving the visibility and measurement of power usage, to actually reducing the carbon footprint of each operational layer. In the upcoming webinar Decarbonizing the Data Center: Making Data Modernization More Sustainable, panelists from Cisco and Hitachi Vantara will discuss the changing attitude to data center sustainability and cloud carbon emissions, the importance of understanding your energy consumption baseline, and much more.
