Blue-chip companies could reduce their carbon emissions by 50% if they migrate their data storage operations to the cloud, a new study says. The study conducted by the Carbon Disclosure Project in London focussed on large IT companies in France and the UK and found that they could achieve large cost savings and carbon reductions by 2020 if they moved their IT systems to shared data networks.
