Datacenter outages are costing more, $1m+ failures now common

Why would they be required to count 'carbon'? I doubt many data centres emit CO2 directly, so the 'carbon' impact is a function of power use and many/most already quote average kW/MW consumption. It's obviously a way of using them to pressure the power suppliers to become 'greener', as if they didn't have enough pressure directly anyway. And it's yet another tick in the ESG box ☹️
