Case study #3: Life cycle assessment of the Green Sustainable Telco Cloud

February 24, 2016, 11:14am

In this project, an innovative Telco-grade cloud technology has been developed to minimize cloud computing impacts on the environment (cf. http://www.synchromedia.ca/node/870 for more details). To evaluate the environmental benefits of the GSTC technology, several applications were investigated using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method.
