ECO Friendly Data Centres
One of our core beliefs is that it’s better to reduce than to simply offset, especially when it comes to energy consumption. It’s a fact that large data centres are necessary to the operation of any web hosting company. It’s also a fact that most data centres consume large amounts of energy and that more than half of that energy is utilised for cooling and air conditioning. That’s why we host our servers in a Green Data Centre. By utilising advanced Outside Air Cooling technology, we’re cutting our cooling costs by nearly 70% and reducing our carbon output by more than 2,000 tons per year.
Traditional data centres run Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRACs) nonstop, cooling the hot air generated by the servers and recirculating it. Outside Air Cooling, instead, vents hot air out of the building entirely and brings cooler air in, only cooling it through the CRAC units when high outside temperatures or humidity makes it necessary. This new technology greatly reduces the energy consumed by the data centre for cooling purposes.
