Making Data Green
Greening up a datacentre makes sense, but there are cost implications.
There are plenty of statistics that point to the brilliance of the cloud. Its capability, its ability to generate revenue, its ubiquity and its agility. Morgan Stanley predicted that by 2018, Microsoft Cloud products will make up 30% of revenue. Amazon Web Services revealed that it had made $3.2 billion by the third quarter of 2016, and Gartner said that the worldwide public cloud services market will have seen 17% growth by the close of 2016. It really is all about the growth, but how can the business really make cloud services pay?
