How can the right data storage solution support sustainability goals, dramatically reduce your power consumption and save on energy costs?

Data centers today use between 1% and 2% of the world’s energy and have the same impact as the global airline industry – and that number is only set to grow. Storage is the fastest growing part of that energy use, sitting at 25% today and predicted to account for 40% in less than 10 years.

It is almost certainly one of the biggest factors to be considered in an organization's ESG goals, and while it might seem like a mammoth task, there are data storage solutions out there that can dramatically reduce power consumption.

So, how can organisations become empowered and enabled to address these issues? And what achievable and attainable steps can your organization take?

Join Pure Storage and fellow likeminded executives as we discuss your challenges, best practice and experience, and explore potential opportunities and solutions that could save you up to 85% of your energy costs.
