“Power consumption in data centers is a global problem – The answer is global energy efficiency standards”  is the  title of a compelling article written by Wayne M. Adams (SNIA Green Storage Initiative Wayne M. Adams is the chairman of SNIA’s board of directors).

The article highlights that the need to raise awareness to reduce emissions is at an all-time high, as five percent of total global energy usage is by electronics.
