In response to the unprecedented scale of current and forecasted infrastructure demands, the largest data center owners in the world have leveraged open hardware to drive major advances in TCO and optimize their corresponding hardware refresh cycles. But challenges remain. Big challenges. First, this same opportunity has not been available to the broader global IT markets; and second, despite this progress, exponential growth in data and compute requirements are driving infrastructure scale that is unsustainable.A circular economic IT model is the answer to both. In this session, Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew, will share real-world data, customer experiences and products that maximize the financial and sustainability returns of your IT hardware today. Whether you already run massive data centers, or are headed that way and facing capex and resource constraints as you scale, adopting circular principles and solutions can significantly decrease IT hardware TCO, and minimize your CO2e impact. Together, let’s use our tremendous collective power to democratize access to OCP solutions for enterprises globally, maximize the lifetime value of assets, and achieve an essential sustainability advantage.
