Powering the
Circular Data Center

Maximizing lifetime value

Circular Data Centers Defined

Circular data centers redefine the lifetime value for data center hardware by integrating analysis of primary and secondary market uses into a single framework. The benefits are truly transformative. The redeployment and reuse pathways create unprecedented financial returns for hyperscalers, and open up economic growth and new market opportunities that are otherwise blocked for everyone else. Because these pathways extend the hardware lifecycle by years, the model also maximizes sustainability for the entire industry.

The opportunities the circular data center model offers

Across the full lifecycle of data center hardware, from design to decommissioning, this model opens up opportunities that unblock paths to unprecedented financial returns. At the same time, it offers access to opportunity and economic growth while delivering maximum sustainability.

EXPAND TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PRINCIPLES OF THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Principles of the circular economy

The circular economy allows raw materials and goods to stay in productive loops for as long as possible. This requires designing materials and products to be reusable at the start of their lifecycle. When they have served their original purpose, these old products and materials are repurposed to serve new use cases in new form factors. The approach replaces the traditional linear economy system, where products are disposed of, once used.

  • Regenerative by design
  • Maintaining highest utility value as long as possible
  • Design for longevity, with the creation of new market opportunities and mechanisms in mind
  • $4.5 trillion global circular economy financial opportunity
