Enabling Sustainable Clouds: The Case for Virtualizing the Energy System [article]

Noman Bashir and Tian Guo and Mohammad Hajiesmaili and David Irwin and Prashant Shenoy and Ramesh Sitaraman and Abel Souza and Adam Wierman
2021 arXiv   pre-print
These approaches have limits: many cloud data centers already operate near peak efficiency, and carbon offsets cannot scale to near zero carbon where there is little carbon left to offset.  ...  The current approach to enabling sustainable clouds focuses on improving energy-efficiency and purchasing carbon offsets.  ...  Hence, we envision sustainable clouds will include many smaller, more widely distributed, micro data centers that are largely self-powered, primarily using solar and batteries [23] .  ...
