What is the sober and economical file transfer, what is it?

Sharing files represents a significant part of digital pollution, particularly because it involves storing large files in the cloud. So how can we optimize these energy-intensive operations and move towards a sober and economical file transfer? 

The data storage problem

Companies store a large volume of data, whether it is work files, customer data or administrative data. If the storage seems dematerialized, it has many physical consequences since the data is actually stored in data centers.

No more attachments!

According to Club Green IT, sending 33 e-mails of 1 MB to two recipients per day would produce 180 kg of CO2 per year, the equivalent of 1,000 km travelled by car.

According to the organization Carbon Literacy Project, 4 grams of CO2 are generated by sending a standard email, and up to 50 grams with a large attachment. Sending a 1 MB vacation photo to 10 friends would be equivalent to driving 500 meters. 

These figures make us think twice about clicking on the "attach files" button. But what are our alternatives?
