Abstract:  VMware’s virtualization technology has helped customers across the globe avoid 603 million megawatt hours of power consumption or 340 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions. The collective impact of this avoidance is equivalent to the power consumed by 43% of US households for one year. We have taken a step further to come up with more innovative ways to embed sustainability as a DNA to our technology.
