Computer equipment and data centers take up lots of space, suck a ton of energy, and generate a large amount of heat.

Everything is happening so fast. Computers that are only 20 years old are completely outmoded, and even today PCs that are only five years old are considered outdated. Somewhere in a junk heap near you lies the neglected, yellowed carcass of a computer once loved and admired. And while you may not want to admit it, your brand-new zillion-gigahertz whiz-bang tower of power likely will be covered in a blanket of dust in a few years, too.
