Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), Dell Technologies Inc., and Equinix, Inc. have joined forces to drive innovation and green practices in the country. The three organizations will work together to reshape the way digital infrastructure is designed, deployed, and maintained with a focus on promoting sustainable digital solutions and green technology practices across the region.
As part of this partnership, IMDA, Dell and Equinix will provide guidance and recommendations to modernize digital infrastructure deployment sustainably and to optimize the integration and utilization between hardware and software interfaces. This partnership will aim to develop a comprehensive process to measure, capture and audit the quantifiable sustainability improvement in the form of energy and carbon emission savings.
Ensuring sustainable operation of IT infrastructures is seen as of utmost importance, given Singapore’s aspirations to enhance its connectivity and computing capabilities to facilitate emerging technologies like generative AI.
Singapore has already taken significant steps towards achieving its goal of becoming a hub for digital sustainability, including launching one of the world’s first standards for optimizing energy efficiency for data centers in tropical climate countries earlier in 2023. This partnership represents another important step towards promoting green ICT practices and driving the development of sustainable digital applications.
