The Carbon Reduction Opportunity of Moving to the Cloud for APAC
Can enterprises and public sector organizations across Asia and the Pacific reduce energy consumption by moving workloads from on-premises data center infrastructure to the cloud?
This report from 451 Research and the AWS Institute calculates the potential reduction in energy use and carbon emissions if organizations move business applications from on-premises enterprise and public sector data centers to the cloud. Self-owned and operated IT equipment and data centers are a major source of energy use and carbon emissions for enterprises and public sector organizations.
451 Research is part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, while AWS Institute is a thought leadership and executive education program set up by Amazon to accelerate digital transformation for public sector executives.
