Helen leads the Marketing and Demand Generation functions at Gaia Edge, ensuring we raise awareness of the key sustainability issues that our industry is facing.
"My primary driver is to ensure that Gaia Edge and our technology partners are in the right position to help organisations achieve their performance and sustainability objectives. I firmly believe that together we can make a huge difference to our carbon footprint "
Helen is an experienced, commercial Marketing and Sales leader with 20 years’ marketing and sales experience working with multi-national and global organisations to grow markets and exceed revenue goals.
In the UK alone Datacenters reportedly account for 41.11TWh a year or 12% of all energy consumption. A trend that is accelerating rapidly and set to continue given the appetite for data, connectivity and of course storage - estimated to grow by 30% YOY.
As our collective consciousness becomes increasingly aware of the hyper energy consumption within Datacenters, including Co-Location facilities, organisations are likely to come under increasing pressure from internal and external stakeholders alike to demonstrably reduce their technology carbon footprint.
All this whilst maintaining the demands of uptime, availability and performance.
This increased public pressure is not felt lightly and indeed will be in line with many organisations own internal desires, plans and strategy for decreasing their own energy usage.
Driving action and visible reductions in energy and power usage are key measures for many public and private organisations across all business areas - with technology environments and datacenters becoming an increasing zone of focus.
The leadership team at Gaia Edge understand just how important reducing the consumption of energy, power, heat, light and cooling across the datacenter is now and importantly how crucial it will become in the future as organisation lead the fight to protect our natural resources.
