Green Data Centres

Why is it important for data centres to be green?

The average data centre uses more power in a year than the city of Leicester, meaning that a badly run, environmentally inefficient datacentre can cause a lot of harm to the environment. By carbon offsetting and running on 100% renewable power, data centres can be run in a way that is not only friendly to the environment but also helps long term sustainable projects to take place, that will help the environment for years to come.

Turning a data centre completely green, with its huge power usage, is a large challenge for the data centre industry, but with the environment and green energy becoming more and more important as natural resources are depleted, it is essential for data centres to become as friendly to the environment as possible.
