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.
