Data Center Sustainability

Data centers require power…and lots of it. As the world experiences unprecedent natural disasters, brown outs and black outs, government agencies and private research groups are supporting data center efficiency initiatives and are helping set the standard for green best practices.


Organizations are looking at green data center providers for a variety of reasons:

  • Compliance
    The European Union and other countries are demanding that data centers and telecom providers work toward being carbon neutral by 2030.
  • Energy Costs
    Energy is the largest variable cost for data center customers. Optimizing the energy consumption needed to power and cool facilities, computer rooms and data centers helps the bottom line.
  • Social Imperative
    Air pollution and other by-products of an industrialized society negatively impact human health and the environments in which we live. It makes sense to limit the impact of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in our daily lives for a healthy and happy workforce.

How Green Is Your Data Center Provider?

We have all heard service providers profess that their facilities are “green,” but how do you know if they are acting on their green initiatives and if those initiatives are saving anyone money?

The good news is that going green in the data center can significantly reduce your organization’s costs as well as reduce your carbon footprint. You just need to know the right questions to ask to realize these savings.
