Forbes.com: Why Energy Is A Big And Rapidly Growing Problem For Data Centers
U.S. data centers use more than 90 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity a year,
requiring roughly 34 giant (500-megawatt) coal-powered plants. Global data centers
used roughly 416 terawatts (4.16 x 1014 watts) (or about 3% of the total electricity)
last year, nearly 40% more than the entire United Kingdom. And this consumption will
double every four years.
This is a big problem, and it's getting bigger.

The Future is Very Cloudy: Data Centers, Humanity &
the Power Wall
CAMPBELL, Calif., November 13, 2017 - Dr. Radoslav "Rado" Danilak, CEO of Silicon Valley
startup Tachyum Inc., is among the invited speakers at the IEEE SF Bay Area Nanotechnology Council,
presenting November 14 at 2 p.m. at the Conference Center, 2900 Semiconductor Dr., Santa Clara, California.
Danilak's presentation will describe the underlying reasons behind the single most
critical challenge facing the data centers today - energy consumption. With data centers
currently consuming 90 billion kilowatt hours of electricity annually - representing more
than 2 percent of total electrical output, and 40% more electricity than the entire United Kingdom
- the result is that data centers are producing more carbon pollution than all the
commercial airliners on the planet.
Tachyum Addresses Growing Data Center Energy Consumption
at Storage Visions Conference
CAMPBELL, Calif., September 26, 2017 - Dr. Radoslav "Rado" Danilak, CEO of Silicon Valley
startup Tachyum Inc., is among the invited speakers at the Storage Visions Conference,
presenting at Session D1: Hardware Visions for Ubiquitous Storage and Memory October 16
at 2 p.m. at the Embassy Suites in Milpitas, Calif.
Danilak's presentation will address the single most critical challenge facing the data center
industry today - energy consumption. With data centers currently consuming 70 billion
kilowatt-hours of electricity annually - representing more than 2 percent of total U.S.
electrical output - and data center power utilization efficiency (PUE) projected to remain
relatively flat over the next 5 years, there must be a better way to overcome the challenge
of supplying power to the growing data center marketplace. Danilak will describe
how Tachyum is tackling this energy challenge with a product that will disrupt data center
hardware markets and usher in the era of low-cost, ultra-low power, all-flash data center
