James Rix & John Booth: Talking Sustainability in Data Centres

In this episode I am joined by James Rix and John Booth. We discuss the ever growing focus on sustainability and what it actually means to the data centre sector.

First we cover what sustainability is and why it is important, not only to the data centre sector but to future generations. James and John both outline their views on what sustainability means and how it is measured (or not) within the data centre sector.

We then talk about regulation in the data centre sector and whether sustainability requires a unified standard measurement. Are we able to say we are sustainable if we have no unified measurement?

Finally we look to the future and how the sector will evolve as the focus on sustainability increases. What is net-zero and is it actually achievable?
