We have always been conscious about our impact on the environment since we started out back in 2002, more than just going paper free, we focus on ensuring the power we use is as efficient as it can be and selecting environmentally friendly partners.
Along with supporting environmental groups and projects, we always have our eyes on what we can do in our day-to-day life.
A simple thing can make a big difference, especially when it comes to lighting an entire data centre. Our UK data centres use automatic energy-efficient LED lighting to lower power consumption.
We use data centres that utilise the latest innovative green evaporative cooling systems. EcoCoolers are up to 80% more efficient than traditional compressor-based computer room air conditioners (CRACs).
Up to 70% of the heat generated by a server is captured by liquid that is flowing through pipes, liquid has a much higher heat transfer capacity than air. This lowers the speed of the servers fans and ensures the hardware is kept cool for the best performance, this, in turn, increases the life of the servers components.Currently not available at all locations.
Ensuring we partner with green thinking data centres helps provide better power efficiency. The PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) is the index used to measure energy efficiency, the lower the number the better the efficiency, our data centres have an average index of 1.19.
Host Media are proud to be carbon negative through donating for the planting of trees every month, and we also support the Climate Coalition by donating monthly.
