Pick Cloud and Google Make it Easy for MV to Go Green

Google and Pick Cloud’s partnership continues to benefit members of the MultiValue community by investing in the planet and reducing carbon footprints.

Google data centers are already carbon neutral. Each Google data center is twice as energy efficient as a typical enterprise data center. They deliver six times as much computing power for the same amount of electrical power, compared to five years ago, according to the vendor.

Some techniques they use are raising the temperature to 80°F, using outside air for cooling, and building custom servers.

Virtual machines help to increase utilization and reduce energy emissions. Google has also added clean energy such as wind and solar. Machine learning algorithms can tell which tasks could be done in the day and which tasks could be done later (aka demand response).

Their goal is to run on carbon-free energy, 24/7, at all of their data centers by 2030. Not only that, but Google is sharing technology, funding, and methods to enable organizations around the world to transition to more carbon-free and sustainable systems.

Every single product in the Google Cloud is carbon neutral, from large businesses running on Google Cloud to Google Search.

There are many reasons why moving MV applications to the cloud makes sense – being green and helping the planet is just one added benefit, according to Pick Cloud. 

Not only are users helping the planet by hosting  servers in the cloud, they gain all the benefits the cloud has to offer – including but not limited to, saving money on energy costs.
