The Cloud is not a power hog
The power consumption in data centers and thus also for cloud services is usually quite high. A study by Northwestern University, the University of California, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Koomey Analytics now shows that certain power-saving measures are working. However, the calculations of the current energy requirements of all data centers worldwide differ widely. This is because operators in many countries do not publish figures. These forecasts for the future are even more uncertain.
