Reducing the Carbon Footprint with Ai Data Detect

Utilizing Ai Data Detect to reduce data storage can result in significant cost savings for enterprises, as well as a reduction in electricity consumption and carbon footprint.  By reducing the amount of data stored, enterprises can reduce their annual data archiving costs and mitigate the environmental impact of their data storage practices.


Since Ai Data Detect can reduce data storage by up to 70%, the savings in annual data archiving costs for enterprises can be significant.  For example, if an enterprise is currently spending $50,000 per terabyte of data per year, reducing its storage needs by 70% would result in savings of $35,000 per terabyte of data annually.  For a regional bank with 10 terabytes of data, this could result in savings of $350,000 per year, and for a large international bank with 1,000 terabytes of data, the savings could be as much as $35 million per year.


Electricity Consumption

In terms of electricity consumption, the amount of electricity consumed by the storage of each terabyte of data can vary depending on the type of storage medium being used.  However, according to a report by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the average electricity consumption for the storage of one terabyte of data in a disk array is approximately 120 kWh per year.  Therefore, if an enterprise is able to reduce its data storage by 70%, it could potentially reduce its electricity consumption by up to 84 kWh per terabyte of data annually.


Reducing electricity consumption can have a significant impact on an enterprise's carbon footprint, as the generation of electricity is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions.  The reduction of 84 kWh per terabyte of data annually could result in a reduction of approximately 60 kg of CO2 emissions per year, assuming an average carbon intensity of 0.71 kg CO2 per kWh.  For an enterprise with 100 terabytes of data, this could result in a reduction of approximately 6,000 kg of CO2 emissions per year.


Cost Savings From Carbon Credits

The actual cost savings resulting from a reduction of 6,000 kg of CO2 emissions per year would depend on the cost of carbon credits in the relevant market.  Carbon credits are a tradable commodity that represents a reduction of one tonne of CO2 emissions, and their cost can vary widely depending on market conditions.


However, it is possible to estimate the potential cost savings using the current market price of carbon credits.  As of March 2023, the average price of carbon credits in the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) was approximately €60 per tonne of CO2 emissions.  Using this price as a reference, the reduction of 6,000 kg of CO2 emissions per year would represent a cost savings of approximately €360 per year.


Actual cost savings could be higher or lower depending on a variety of factors; nonetheless, reducing electricity consumption through the use of more efficient data storage solutions can have significant environmental benefits while potentially reducing costs for enterprises over the long term.
