Earth Day 2021: Post-Virtualization - What’s Next for Green Data Centers?

Server virtualization's dampening effect on data center growth has weakened, so what comes next?

Virtualization greatly dampened growth in the amount of physical servers deployed in the world's data centers, which for years contained growth in the amount of energy our computing infrastructure consumes.
