Saving the Environment with Cloud Computing
Cloud computing has a number of advantages over typical deployments and technology consumption models. At its core, cloud computing works if it’s maximizing resources and it is built to be dynamically capable of adjusting resources to demand.
The cloud grid may someday be viewed similar to the electricity grid. We don’t necessarily know how it all operates, but when you flip the switch, it typically works. On a couple of levels, this compute utility benefits a company performance – pay for what you use and get more when you need it. In addition, it also permits better focus of CAPEX for business growth projects. Lastly, it benefits all of us as it reduces the environmental damage with less fragmented and poorly managed uses of power, cooling, and underutilized, yet always on, computing equipment.
