The future of building a sustainable and power efficient cloud
The future of computing is going to the cloud, as such a more efficient cloud is becoming more and more of a requirement. Whether it’s saving documents or uploading photos we all use the cloud on a day to day basis.
The average cloud operates at approximately 20% of capacity and is responsible for 10% of the world’s electricity consumption the current state of cloud computing is that of an unsustainable model.
The Cloudlighting project intends to change this model by making a more efficient sustainable infrastructure. This will be achieved by converting the current average of 10% usage of cloud computing into 80%.
