How does real-time data processing in the cloud reduce environmental impact?
Unsurprisingly given that 94% of businesses use cloud computing in their operations, the cloud represents 2%-4% of the world’s carbon footprint (source EarthWeb.com). For companies such as SaaScada who were built natively in the web, the carbon footprint is greatly reduced not only by efficient cloud native technology (rather than technology repurposed to cloud) but also by choosing providers such as AWS who utilise 95% renewable energy with a goal of 100% by 2025. Better yet, by utilising real-time data processing we greatly reduce the processing time traditionally used by legacy systems. Nelson explains how SaaScada’s real time data approach reduces environmental impact.
