Sprint Reduces Data Centre Opex And Carbon Emissions

Sprint has cut approximately USD20 million worth of operating costs and reduced the company's overall IT carbon footprint by approximately 10,450 metric tons following a recent audit of its data centres. The process relied in part on the phase-out of 127 nonessential applications. The results included: reclaiming USD28 million by retiring or redeploying 2,239 servers and reclaiming 291,042 gigabytes of storage, reducing the need to expand storage space or add new servers; avoiding the need to build a new data centre facility, by redeploying servers and reclaiming storage; cutting carbon emissions related to powering its data centre by 10,450 metric tons, a step that brings Sprint closer to its 2017 goal to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 15 percent.
