A recent study by Datacenter Dynamics determined that global data centers consume around 31GW of energy each year—enough to power all of Italy (see the infographic). Data center traffic is expected to quadruple by 2016, making energy efficiency a vital focus to decrease environmental impact and save on energy costs.
Choosing a green data center can actually save you money. Our energy efficient facility design leads to industry leading PUEs, allowing us to pass energy savings on to our customers in the form of competitive prices. We strive for a PUE of 1.25 or lower, and our new facility will average just 1.14 PUE.
Our three facility locations have sustainability integrated into every aspect of their design, without sacrificing service or technical specifications. Together with the power of virtualization and Energy Star equipment, we're working to improve data center efficiency by up to 75%. We take into consideration:
These measurements combine with green facility design including a hot aisle containment and free cooling. We purchase Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) for 100% of our energy use, placing us on the EPA Green Power Partner list.
