The drivers of the next generation of information technology (IT) services are the teeming millions who will avail IT services to address their fundamental needs and improve their quality of life. We have the opportunity to transform the world by deconstructing conventional value-chains and replacing them with Sustainable IT services. This transformation can be delivered by an IT ecosystem made up of billions of service-oriented client devices and thousands of data centers. We envision an IT ecosystem that enables the next generation of cities, City 2.0, where available energy is managed as a key resource and apportioned based on the need. The supply and demand side management resulting from IT-based business models, and through measurement, communications and control, will enable many societal and business activities to take place while providing a net positive impact on the environment compared to conventional business models. In this talk, we present the technical approach in least-energy, least-material design of the IT ecosystem with a focus on building sustainable data centers that achieve the targeted total cost of ownership.
