Survey results show that 88% of data centers are not environmentally friendly, while typical enterprise data centers can save up to $ 38 million in energy costs annually and reduce 350 tons of electronic waste

Global leader in enterprise computing, storage and networking solutions and green computing technology Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI) today released its industry survey based on an industry survey of more than 5,000 IT professionals The second annual "Data Center and Environment" report. This year's results again show that most data center leaders are not fully considering green initiatives in the face of increasing data center architecture, increasing data center costs, and increasing environmental impact.

Supermicro's annual survey is designed to report on industry developments, assess data center equipment purchase considerations, and help data center leaders better quantify their long-term environmental impact decisions by saving energy and reducing e-waste.

The main findings:

·Overall, responses from IT experts from SMEs, large enterprises, and well-known companies show that most companies (86%) do not consider the environmental impact of their facilities as an important factor in their data centers:

    ·22% of respondents stated that “environmental factors” were too costly for them to consider as a company's priority-indicating a significant lack of understanding of their return on investment in green computing solutions.

    ·Most data center leaders point to total cost of ownership and return on investment as their main measures of success, with less than 15% of leaders saying energy efficiency, corporate social responsibility or environmental impact are key considerations for their facilities.

·Almost 9 of the 10 data centers are not designed with optimal power efficiency, and the average data center spends more than $ 1.4 million per year:

    ·Utilizing multi-node servers and operating at higher power densities will greatly improve energy demand and reduce costs.

    ·This is particularly wasteful, as utilizing natural air-cooled equipment designs operating above 26.5 degrees Celsius can reduce data center operating costs.

    ·Even with the advent of new cooling technologies and new hardware that can handle higher operating temperatures, the company's data center is still moving towards lower ambient temperatures-this year it is focusing on its equipment and server temperatures compared to 2018 The number of companies staying below 24 degrees Celsius has increased by 13% and currently accounts for more than two-thirds of respondents.

    ·Many companies operate data centers at lower than required power densities-71% of respondents indicated that their data centers operate at less than 19kW per rack.

·Since 2018, the main methods of dealing with decommissioned server hardware in data centers have changed alarmingly. In 2019, the number of companies recycling and reusing decommissioned hardware has been reduced overall:

    ·9% of these large companies reported disposing of the hardware directly without any form of recycling.

    ·Since e-waste already accounts for 2% of all waste in the United States and 70% of toxic waste, the modest recycling of reduced large amounts of decommissioned hardware can have a very negative impact on the environment.

    ·Between 2018 and 2019, the number of companies working with certified recycling companies has fallen by 14%, and the number of companies reporting self-recycling hardware has also fallen by 5%.

    ·To make matters worse, about one-tenth of the large enterprises with the most data center hardware still discard retired equipment directly.

·The optimized hardware update cycle can reduce e-waste by more than 80%, improve performance by 15%, and reduce purchase costs by 44%-it is expected to save $ 900,000 in capital and reduce 12 tons of electronic waste each year.

    ·In 2018, many companies (35%) plan to update server hardware every 2-3 years, while 40% of companies in 2019 plan to update server hardware every 4-5 years.

Supermicro President and CEO Charles Liang said: "The results of the 2019 survey once again show that considering environmental impact when selecting data center equipment is still a challenge for the IT industry. We continue to focus on resource conservation systems Structure to help end users save energy and hardware acquisition costs while reducing environmental impact. "

Supermicro's resource-saving architecture separates the CPU from memory and other subsystems, so each resource can be updated independently, enabling data centers to reduce the cost of update cycles and their impact on the environment. From a two- to four-year update cycle, Supermicro's resource-saving servers allow data centers to independently optimize the adoption of improved new technologies. Compared with traditional destruction and replacement models, they can deliver better performance at lower cost More efficient servers.

The second annual Supermicro Data Center and Environmental Report outlines key trends that shape IT infrastructure delivery and strategy. This year, the survey was conducted by email in October 2019 and included survey opinions from IT practitioners from 1,362 data center operators and enterprises, service providers, and small and medium-sized enterprises around the world, covering jobs, data center layout, vertical Aspects of key statistics including industry and business size.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said, "San Jose-based Supermicro's global survey on green data centers shows that most companies do not adequately consider power consumption and reduce e-waste when selecting data center equipment. As a company focused on innovation And a sustainable Silicon Valley leader, Supermicro has long advocated green computing, and I invite industry players to learn more about its impact and opportunities. "

If green development is to be achieved, the data center industry must make many improvements. Choosing to take advantage of technological advances in innovative data center equipment can have a significant impact on the environment. For example, decentralized server configurations can save a lot of update costs, and the opportunity to quickly adopt the latest server technology can reduce update cycles.

Another consideration is the power efficiency of the data center. Efficient, high-density servers can reduce the power consumption and physical space required. In addition, a system that supports natural air cooling without the need for computer room air conditioning (CRAC) equipment to cool down can also reduce the energy requirements of the data center.
