We came across Wired Magazine’s article about a new study finding evidence that cloud computing not only increases productivity but also reduces carbon emissions. That’s big news! The scientists argue that by migrating infrastructure to the cloud, the result is a marked reduction in energy consumption and thus offers you a chance to make a business decision that benefits the environment.
We really like this idea that cloud services mean a double-win for the end user: you get a technology solution that offers convenient access to your data plus a chance to make an environmental choice.
Join the discussion over at Wired: is the cloud key to reducing carbon emissions?
Ps – we liked this illustrated video explanation of cloud computing that shows you what this cloud thing is all about.
