Salesforce.com commissioned a study with WSP Environment & Energy, and found that customers of salesforce.com’s cloud computing services produce 95 percent less carbon, on average, compared with companies using other equivalent software in on-premise application servers.
The study also showed that multitenant cloud platforms are on average 64 percent more carbon-efficient than private clouds that don’t use multitenancy. Private clouds are run out of third-party data centers.
“Our analysis shows that cloud computing platforms, like salesforce.com’s, are substantially more energy- and carbon-efficient than either on-premise systems or third-party data centers,” WSP wrote in the report. “Cloud computing will play a crucial role in the sustainability of IT.”
