What does your data centre cost?
Global energy consumption
Data centres now have the same carbon footprint as the airline industry and are currently responsible for 3% of the global electricity consumption. As data volumes become larger and more business critical, the data center becomes increasingly more important. Choosing the right data center is crucial for business, security and the environment.
In-house data centers = higher costs
Choosing an energy efficient and environmentally responsible data center solution, will ensure that companies can reduce both costs and their carbon footprint. Electricity makes up a significant part of the total data centre cost, with between 70-75% of the operating cost attributed to power. An in-house data center is usually sub-optimised and draws on much more power, so moving to a highly efficient data center can save 50-60% of the total operating cost.
