Data centre efficiency is indicated by it’s Power Use Efficiency (PUE) rating. Our data centre has a PUE of 1.16, way bellow the average of 1.8, which indicates just how power efficient our facility is.
We use virtualisation on our servers to enable us to make the most efficient use of our hardware. To offset any carbon produced from powering our servers we plant a tree for every server that we operate, and we encourage all of our customers to make use of our tree planting service to help offset carbon.
Unless requested we bill all of our customers electronically to reduce paper use. All of our staff are able to work from home to reduce commuting.
