What is a datacentre?

Datacentres are buildings specifically designed to house computers. They are often out of the public eye, but increasingly large in size.

They are the fastest growing source of IT energy use. These buildings house the internet, business and telecommunications systems, and store the bulk of our data.

The US hosts approximately 40% of the world’s datacentre servers, where it is estimated they consume close to 3% of the national power supply.
