Emerson Power has a great infographic detailing the state of the data center, points out Adam Lesser, GigaOM Pro’s Green IT analyst. The over 500,000 data centers worldwide take up almost 300 million square feet of real estate, and an average server today has 45 times more compute capacity than one configured in 2001.

With these dramatic growth rates, it makes one wonder what 2021 will look like, and at what point our insatiable desire for more data, be it video, or search results or CRM databases, will make it even more critical to make data centers sustainable.
