Since the dawn of the information age, technology providers have been concentrating a lot of their efforts on improving the energy efficiency of data centers in order to make them more efficient over the course of the last two decades. Consequently, this has proved to be beneficial for both the business, as well as the environment, as well as benefiting both the business and the environment. There has been a noticeable shift in the focus from efficiency to sustainability over the course of time with the advancement of technology. In order to establish a sustainable planet, we have to consider many factors, including renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, waste, land, ecosystems, and biodiversity, in order to achieve a sustainable future. The technology providers can be able to have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the overall carbon footprint of the data centers as well as increase the efficiency of the data centers by reducing the carbon footprint. There are a number of technology infrastructures that rely heavily on data centers, and data centers play a critical role in most of them. There is no doubt that IT infrastructure technology is hosted in a Data Center, regardless of the industry, whether it is Mobile App Development, Banking, Government, Telecommunication, or Telecom. As far as data centers are concerned, there are two types: in-house data centers and outsourced data centers. There is a great deal of effort that goes into the design and implementation of the Data Centers.
