Autodesk cuts data centre energy use 60%

An aggressive effort to eliminate data centre waste is now saving Autodesk about UUS$7 million a year, according to the design software company. The initiative led to the consolidation of 85% of the company's servers over the past year and enabled the company to exceed its target to reduce data centre energy use, said Lynelle Cameron, Autodesk's director of sustainability.

'We had a goal to reduce our energy use by 50% and we're now at 60%," she said. "The good news behind that is not just that we've reduced our carbon footprint significantly from our data centres, but also we have $7 million of savings annually as a result of that project."
