By assessing the carbon footprint of a server, Dell is able to optimize hardware refresh cycles from a carbon footprint perspective.
In research conducted in 2011, Dell determined the carbon footprint of the PowerEdge R710, a typical high-volume, next-generation Intel Xeon processor-based 2U Rack Server that is representative of a range of similar server products.
The carbon footprint of the laptop was assessed for three regions: the US, Europe and China. This was done to compare the impacts caused by different transport patterns and energy mixes.
