Sustainable Data Storage and Fujifilm

As the global economy continues to generate exponential data growth, the energy-intensive IT industry must take action to reduce its carbon footprint. There are many steps Fujifilm has taken to meet our climate change commitments and improving IT sustainability is a part of them. Fujifilm's dedication to sustainability starts with manufacturing eco-friendly forms of data storage - tape which stores your data and reduces your carbon emissions.

Our Increasingly Digital World

Carbon emissions are projected to balloon because of the energy that will be needed to sustain the rapidly growing volumes of data anticipated with the continued evolution of the IoT/DX economy. Curbing such emissions is a pressing concern that requires an urgent response.

According to IDC whitepaper,Accelerating Green Datacenter Progress with Sustainable Storage Strategies, the amount of data stored in data centers is expected to grow by 27% each year through 2025, and energy consumption increased by 31% from 2017 to 2020.

Sustainable Data Storage and Tape Storage

Expanding the use of tape storage can positively impact sustainability goals. In a scenario in which an increasing amount of data to be stored is designated as “archival”.  From 2019 to 2030, 80% of archive data to be stored on enterprise storage systems and 57% of replicated data to be stored on enterprise storage systems is migrated to tape.

The Benefit of Moving Cold Data to Tape Storage

As much as 60% - 80% of stored information is “cold data,” which is rarely accessed but still has value and cannot be deleted. It is estimated that if 60% of all the stored information in the world were moved to tape storage, carbon dioxide could be reduced by 72 million tons over ten years.

*According to a study by Brad Johns Consulting, comparing the average cost for disk and tape used for archiving over 10 years.
