Improving sustainability is very much on the agenda of most enterprise IT teams. However, achieving this amidst a global pandemic, supply chain disruption, staff shortages and tightened IT budgets can make this task seem impossible & costly.
In this webinar, Omdia Analyst Vlad Galabov, President of ITRenew, Ali Fenn and Steve Helvie from the Open Compute Project will delve into recertified open compute solutions, available today, that offer IT buyers a practical way to increase sustainability AND remove supply chain and budget obstacles.
Join us as we discuss:
- The benefits of open architecture
- Comparisons of the CAPEX & OPEX gains of utilizing energy-efficient recertified equipment, and the time to market
- Total cost of ownership advantages of building IT infrastructure with smart technology that is sustainably built
