We believe it is our responsibility – to ourselves, our customers, and the wider world – to do everything we can to make our data centers as sustainable as possible, and maximize their energy efficiency.
Sustainability and efficiency go hand in hand
100% green energy. No compromises. EvoSwitch operated the first certified carbon-neutral data center in Europe, and we have transferred our knowledge of sustainability best practice to the USA. Today, we use a combination of wind power, hydro and biomass to power our next generation data centers.
An optimized IT infrastructure goes hand-in-hand with sustainability, minimizing long-term environmental impact. That’s why we place a strong emphasis on efficiency in the design and operation of our data centers. We are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint. The resulting sustainable solutions are independently certified. And we are pleased to say that we have received global recognition for our efforts.
Driving down PUE
One of the keys to our success over recent years has been our focus on PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness: the ratio of total energy used by a facility to the energy delivered to equipment.). Our latest data center halls score very low PUE levels throughout the year – which means the vast majority of the power consumed is used to run your applications. Not only does the low PUE support our green targets but it cuts costs which are reflected in the competitive rates we can offer to customers.
- Powered by 100% renewable energy
- Very low PUE scores
- Range of design and operations best practice save 60-80% on energy usage:
- Free cooling
- Advanced datafloor management, e.g. cables through ducts, no hot spots
- Lighting linked to movement sensors
- Modular build-out to minimize power overhead
- BMS (Building Management System) to optimize efficiency
