Moving operations to the cloud means taking advantage of the higher utilisation rates of on-demand infrastructure, more efficient cooling and newer hardware optimised by cloud providers, and the potential for more sustainable, flexible, and resilient supply chains. However, businesses need to consider carefully how they are managing their consumption of cloud and optimising workloads and data storage to maximise sustainability.
This session will highlight the benefits of cloud computing for sustainability and explore best practice for organisations looking to minimise their impact on the environment. techUK will also publish an insights paper alongside the event - techUK Cloud Insights: Cloud computing and the path to a more sustainable future - showcasing thought leadership from techUK members.
