Stunning: $30B Worth of Idle Servers Sit in Data CentersJune 4, 2015 2:48 am
We spotted this stat today:
“Working in partnership with Stanford University and TSO Logic, a provider of data center analytics tools, IT consulting firm Anthesis Group released a report this week that suggests there are 10 million physical servers deployed inside data centers around the world that are currently not actually being used.”
This usage pattern can definitely be made way more efficient than the current state. 10 Million servers and 30 Billion dollars are huge numbers.
