Are you working to become a greener company? Not only does Codero offer green hosting, we also are buying only 80 PLUS certified power supplies for our data center. To date, a third of our power supply units have been updated, resulting in a 25-30% decrease in power consumption.
Codero is putting greener, more energy-conscious power supplies in place for all our servers as announced in our recent press release. Six pallets of power supplies are being recycled which equates to optimizing 1,687 servers with the purchase of newer, more efficient power supplies. Any new server will also receive greener power supplies.
The demand for IT capacity across the world is on the rise and with that increase comes more carbon emissions. The IT industry is responsible for about 2% of the world’s carbon emissions, according to a Pike Research report, and the fastest growing part of that footprint is data centers.
As data energy costs become more apparent, the financial advantages of going to a greener mode of operation are being acknowledged. The report predicts the data center of the future will be energy efficient and more virtualized.
There are many ways businesses can transform their company to be greener. Tell us how you are reducing your carbon footprint. What else do you think data centers could be doing?
