November 18th, 2010
Green bundle offered by Infrastructure-as-a-Service hosting company is an affordable way for companies to reduce carbon footprint left by IT systems.
Overland Park, Kan. — November 18, 2010 — Codero continues to take a green leadership position in the hosting industry by incorporating environmental considerations into its business practices. A new green server bundle powered by 100% renewable energy is now one of many steps the Infrastructure-as-a-Service company is taking to help reduce the buildup of green house gases currently causing climate change.
Codero has added the Intel® Xeon® Quad Core 2.53 GHz server to its lineup to assist its customers in becoming greener as well. Built on the Nehalem microarchitecture, it requires less power for the same performance as other servers in its class. It provides exceptional energy efficiency and performance on demand by dynamically managing cores, threads, cache, interfaces and power at runtime. Rounding out the green bundle to help reduce emissions is a more energy efficient, 80Plus® certified power supply and a green hard drive which uses less power and runs cooler than its counterparts.
With prices starting at $200.00 per month, the cost-efficient green server contains all the features needed to address workloads of growing organizations:
RAM: 4 GB DDR3-1333
RAM: Upgradeable to 16 GB
Model Number: X3440
Hard Drive: WD GreenPower Technology™ AV-GP SATA
Motherboard: Supermicro®, RoHS 6/6 compliant
Front Side Bus Speed: 2.5 GT/s

To support the green server bundle, Codero provides a range of products and services to help businesses scale for future growth including Server Protection Plan, Server Monitoring, Remote Access, a PCI-compliant environment and Standard Dedicated Server support (see: Scope of Support Overview).
"We have been investigating a variety of eco-friendly ways to counteract the impact data centers have on the environment and to continue to reduce our footprint. The green bundle will help our customers deploy technologies to conserve energy affordably while competently addressing their business IT challenges," Nicholas Gaugler, Vice President of Development and Engineering at Codero said.
