A panel of experts chaired by Professor Rod Tucker on the Internet of Things. According to 2014 IDC estimates, there are already more than 50 billion globally connected sensors that can track, monitor and feed data to computerised systems.

This paper reports on a study of energy consumption for data storage in data centres. Unlike previous estimates, which have been extrapolations of broad energy usage within the data centre, we take a bottom-up approach. We show that the growth in energy consumption can be mitigated somewhat by adopting a more aggressive policy of data archiving on long-term, low-energy, “cold” storage; or more ideally purging data of little or no future value.
