There are several reasons why migrating to cloud based technology would be beneficial to your organisation, and decreasing your carbon footprint is one of them.
It has never been more important to focus on decreasing the environmental impact your organisation has. Migrating to cloud based technology is a step towards a greener organisation.
A research paper funded by Google found that by moving commonly used software to the cloud, energy usage would decrease by up to 87%. As well as this, cloud computing is commonly used by those who work remotely, so allows for less travel to and from the workplace which, in turn, decreases emissions.
Less equipment used equals less energy wasted. Moving your software to the cloud is more energy efficient as you will no longer be relying on physical products, meaning your energy usage will decrease.
Another environmental benefit of the cloud is that your organisation can go paperless. The requirement to print and store physical documents will be replaced with virtual storing and online scanning and signing of documents. This means no more disposing of paper files and documents, which is harmful to the environment.
Of course, cloud computing does involve energy use. However, in comparison to traditional data centre solutions, cloud is definitely the eco-friendly alternative. The cloud is a more efficient use of technology and your organisation can reduce its carbon footprint simply by migrating to a public, private or hybrid cloud.
As well as its environmental benefits, there are other reasons why migrating to the cloud would be beneficial to your organisation. There are several security benefits that come with cloud based computing. The storage of your data will be at a remote location, making it more difficult for hackers or thieves to access.
It provides higher availability for network infrastructure and applications, avoiding employee downtime due to server failures with cloud computing.
