Top Tips to becoming more sustainable…
Buy High Capacity HDD
Seagate High Capacity HDDs are the right sustainable choice for several reasons. Firstly, they have a longer lifespan compared to other storage devices, which means fewer replacements and less e-waste. They are designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures, making them suitable for rugged environments, and their advanced power management features minimize energy consumption. Additionally, Seagate HDDs are manufactured using sustainable materials and processes, and the company has a comprehensive recycling program in place to ensure that end-of-life products are properly disposed of or repurposed.
- 20TB R/W power draw is 9.8/7.0
- 2TB R/W power draw is 9.4w
- Therefore lower cap drives need more drives to achieve the same capacity, but also more power to run multiple drives.
- Therefore watts per TB is much higher. Also space in the DC, transport etc much lower.
By choosing Seagate High Capacity HDDs, individuals and organizations can reduce their environmental impact while still maintaining reliable and efficient data storage.
Choose the right Systems
Seagate Corvault is the right sustainable system choice for several reasons. Firstly, it is a high-density data storage solution that is designed to minimize the physical space required for data storage, reducing the environmental footprint of data centers. It utilizes Seagate’s advanced power management technology to minimize energy consumption, which in turn reduces carbon emissions and energy costs. Secondly, Corvault is built to last, with a modular design that allows for easy upgrades and maintenance, extending the lifespan of the system and minimizing e-waste. Finally, Seagate has a comprehensive recycling program in place to ensure that end-of-life products are properly disposed of or repurposed.
- Self-healing systems
- Do not need engineers on call out, therefore less transportation costs
- Problem with RAID is that faulty drive is removed and destroyed – landfill
- Corvault isolates problems to specific platter faces and can keep the drive in service
- Some compute functions can be offloaded on to storage therefore can use less cores – less power
By choosing Seagate Corvault, organizations can reduce their environmental impact while still maintaining reliable and efficient data storage.
Utilise the Cloud
Using Seagate Lyve Cloud offers several sustainability benefits. Firstly, it enables organizations to reduce their physical data storage needs, which minimizes the environmental footprint of their data center operations. By leveraging cloud storage, companies can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with running on-premise data centers. Additionally, Seagate Lyve Cloud utilizes advanced power management features that reduce energy consumption while maintaining high performance. Finally, Seagate has a comprehensive sustainability program in place that ensures end-of-life products are properly disposed of or repurposed.
- On prem architecture do not achieve 100% utilisation of storage and compute capacity – resources often idle
- Cloud services make much more use of resources allowing many users access to virtual or remote IT assets
- DC are centralised, more efficient use of space, power and compute as well as support functions
- DC offers access to latest, most efficient technologies
By using Seagate Lyve Cloud, organizations can reduce their environmental impact while still maintaining secure and reliable data storage.
1m+ drives recovered, parts and materials recycled and put back into use
Result is 1.1m tonnes of scrap magnets recycled, 39.4 metric tonnes of ALU recycled.
All production and research sites will be powered by renewable energy
Seagate will be carbon neutral – taking meaningful measures and not just trading carbon credits
Seagate has over 2000 suppliers, from who we buy 36 billion components. The Top 10 suppliers represent 63% of all purchases. We are working with them to reduce their scope 3 impact, this is very hard to achieve.
