You may have heard that a cloud server platform is more eco-friendly than a traditional server platform, but why is that? What does that really boil down to for energy and cost savings?
The top question that we regularly hear is “What is a green data center?” With data centers now being one of the highest consumers of energy, they are likely to be one of the greatest costs for an enterprise. Our goal is not only to be greener than most data centers, but to also cost less.
Many companies are interested in implementing “the cloud” into their business, but aren’t quite sure how to do it. This is understandable because there are many ways to utilize cloud server infrastructure.
One significant benefit of cloud hosting services is the reduced energy consumption. As a recent post from Pike Research points out, outsourcing data centers leads to savings on manpower, money, and energy. Clouds are less expensive to operate, consume less energy, and have higher utilization rates than traditional data centers.
Both halves of your two-person “IT department” are fidgeting nervously.

It’s a secret ceremony kind of thing, usually involving a mano-a-mano recitation of choice lines from The Matrix.
