As part of our promise to not only help our customers deliver, but create a more sustainable world, I’m pleased to share the launch of our Carbon Reduction Calculator. Now available on our Command Center Dashboard, we are offering an overview of carbon footprint savings that our customers can potentially achieve with Commvault’s deduplication and compression.
Data centers are large consumers of energy, and as such, they can contribute significantly to the global carbon dioxide emissions. Therefore, implementing energy efficiency measures, such as upgrading to more efficient hardware, improving cooling systems, and optimizing server utilization, and using technologies such as deduplication and compression that help reduce their overall Data Center storage requirements among other things, can significantly reduce a data center’s carbon footprint.
As consumers become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their purchasing decisions, carbon footprint savings can be an important selling point for companies that prioritize sustainability. Adopting sustainable practices and technologies and reducing carbon footprint can not only contribute to a healthier planet but also lead to cost savings and enhance brand reputation.
A carbon footprint savings calculator in a data center context can help organizations assess their environmental impact and make informed decisions about implementing sustainable practices and technologies that can aid in reducing their overall carbon footprint. For calculating carbon footprint savings in a data center, our customers typically consider factors such as the data center’s location, size, energy usage, and electricity source. And all these factors are based on industry-established measured metrics.
Our Carbon Reduction Calculator measures the amount of disk storage and energy consumption required before and after deduplication and compression, as delivered by Commvault, and presents this information in terms of more relatable equivalent values, such as the number of barrels of oil consumed, number of smartphones charged, number of passenger vehicles that it could have powered, etc.
At Commvault, part of our commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is helping our customers and partners manage their data more sustainably.
With our Carbon Reduction Calculator, we’re not only helping our customers manage and protect their data, but we’re helping them do good for the environment with more sustainably friendly business practices.
