'Tis the season to be wasteful

'Tis the season to be wasteful
In 2014, data centers in the United States consumed approximately 100 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy.

Just how significant is this waste? It turns out that the power grid supplies 150W of power to meet the demands of a digital chip that may need only 100W. Moreover, the amount of wasted energy is even greater because every watt of power lost through power ... Read more
