In a special Greener Data episode of JSA’s Data Movers podcast series, Jaymie Scotto Cutaia and top B2B social media influencer Evan Kirstel caught up with Karim Shaikh, CTO at Virtual Power Systems (VPS) and a faculty member of the Integrated Innovation Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
Karim is also a contributing author to the much-anticipated book Greener Data: Actionable Insights from Industry Leaders, making its debut on Amazon on Earth Day - April 22, 2022.
Karim discusses what intrigued him about technology from an early age and what led him to change his way of thinking about power infrastructure when he met Shankar Ramamurthy in 2014, the founder of VPS.
In Karim’s chapter of Greener Data, he discusses the idea of Autonomous Digital Infrastructure and Software-defined Power and how it is now being accepted as a key differentiator by data center operators. During this episode of Data Movers, Karim expands on this and why he sees it as the future of the industry.
When it comes to green initiatives, Karim is a thought leader in the industry. Karim discusses with us how the data center industry has adopted building sustainable data centers as an important green initiative over the past two decades and the reasons power infrastructure is underutilized.
Karim also discusses what he would recommend to data center designers and operators to help them rethink how they construct contracts and build in order to future-proof their data centers from a sustainability standpoint. Plus, learn more about Karim and what he enjoys doing when he is not working on the next big green initiative.
