Commvault: Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Data
As a public software company, Commvault does a lot internally to reduce its own carbon footprint through responsible sourcing, use, reuse and recycling.
While every little bit of this makes a difference, Commvault's real impact is helping thousands of customers globally manage their data more responsibly.
Their tangible, global impact though, is within their customers. Searching the web, streaming a movie, or using dashboards and databases at work generates emissions in our always-on, data driven world. With more visibility into and understanding of their data, customers can better optimize and intelligently manage data to offset their carbon footprint.
Up to 70% of business data is a copy, so Commvault’s smart management combined with data reduction technologies really makes a difference. The same technology also makes moving data to modern energy-efficient infrastructure, or migrating to a sustainably-powered cloud provider, simpler and safer. Finally, being able to re-use data under management without making more copies helps organisations to run new transformation programs without increasing their carbon footprint.
Counselling their customers on sustainable data management practices not only enhances how they manage and get the most out of their business-critical data, but helps them reduce their consumption.
