  • [1] The results show that the Microsoft cloud is between 22 and 93 percent more energy efficient than traditional enterprise datacenters, depending on the specific comparison being made. When taking into account our renewable energy purchases, the Microsoft cloud is between 72 and 98 percent more carbon efficient. These savings are attributable to four key features of the Microsoft cloud: IT operational efficiency, IT equipment efficiency, datacenter infrastructure efficiency, and renewable electricity procurement.
