The concerns about environmental impacts, electricity costs, and the tremendous energy demands of data centers are mounting. 

Data centers accounted for a staggering 205 terawatt-hours of electricity usage or roughly 1% of all global electricity consumption in 2018 as well as producing an alarming 200 million metric tons of carbon dioxide.

In order to minimize the energy consumption and the environmental impact the data center brings to the environment, along with the encouragement from the government, a large number of data center operators, including Korean enterprises have started to adopt diverse green technologies and actively making social changes to reduce carbon emissions and establish a positive brand image to customers by obtaining Green Data Center Certificate.  

To minimize the tremendous energy consumption and environmental problems, many domestic data center enterprises actively adopt various green technologies and sustainable IT infrastructures, with encouragement from the Government. Moreover, the Korea Information Technology Service Industry Association (ITSA) started to launch the Green Data Center Certificate to contribute to the reduction of the overall energy consumption. By 2020, ITSA has aimed to have more than 15% of local data centers obtain the certificate. 

So what does it take to implement a green data center in Korea? Is there going to be a rising demand for introducing sustainable IT infrastructure in the domestic market? And what is the ideal strategy to achieve sustainability and profitability in the data center business?

If you’re looking for the answers to these questions, you’ve come to the right place. Join industry experts and fellow decision-makers on Thursday 13 August to get the answers.

데이터 센터는 현대인들에게 다양한 IT 서비스를 제공하는데 필수적인 시설이지만, 막대한 전기 에너지 사용으로 인해 지구 온난화와 환경에 미치는 부정적 영향에 대한 우려 있기도 합니다. 

한 조사에 따르면 2018년도 전세계 데이터 센터 산업은 전세계 전력 소비량의 약 1%에 해당하는 205 테라와트시의 전력을 사용하여 무려 2억톤의 이산화탄소를 배출하였다고 발표하였습니다. 

이러한 막대한 에너지 소비와 그에 따른 환경 문제를 최소화하기 위해서 국내의 많은 데이터 센터 전문 기업들은 정부의 친환경 그린(green) 테크놀로지 채택 독려에 힘입어, 다양한 그린 테크놀로지 및 친환경 IT 인프라를 적극적으로 도입하고 있습니다. 또한 한국 IT서비스산업협회는 관련 산업의 에너지 절감을 촉진하기 위하여 그린 데이터 센터 인증 (또는 그린DC인증) 제도를 운영하기 시작했습니다.협회는 2020년까지 국내 데이터 센터의 15% 이상이 그린 데이터 센터 인증을 취득하는 것을 목표로 하고 있습니다.

그렇다면, 그린 데이터 센터를 실현하기 위해서는 어떤 노력들이 필요할까요? 국내 시장에서 친환경 IT 인프라 도입의 필요성이 지속적으로 제기될 수 있을까요? 마지막으로, 데이터 센터 기업이 참고할 만한, 비즈니스 측면과 친환경 측면을 함께 고려하는 일석이조의 방안이 있을까요?

만약 위의 질문의 답을 찾고 계신다면, 2020년 8월 13일 목요일, 관련 업계 전문가와 함께 그린 데이터 센터 관련 시장의 현황과 그의 필요성에 대해 배우면서 그 해답을 찾으시길 추천드립니다.

현재 웨비나 참여 가능한 자리가 한정되어 있습니다. 전세계 및 국내의 친환경 그린 데이터 센터에 관하여 더 깊이 알고 싶으신 분들은 지금 바로 등록하시기 바랍니다.
