OUR SERVER USES ENERGY FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES.
As we recognize the urgency to protect our planet, it’s imperative to seek out alternative means of energy. With this in mind, our server takes the lead in powering its data centers using energy sourced from renewable sources to power the servers in its data centers.
ENERGY FROM HYDROPOWER.
Located in the verdant landscapes of our German data center parks, our server company uses hydropower to fuel its operations. Guided by our steadfast environmental partner, Energiedienst AG, a TÜV certified company renowned for generating 100 percent carbon dioxide-free and environmentally-friendly energy, we’re committed to forging a brighter, more sustainable future. By powering our servers with the forces of nature, we’re not just reducing our carbon footprint, but also demonstrating that innovation and eco-friendliness can coexist.
ENERGY FROM WIND AND HYDROPOWER.
In our Finland’s Data Center Park Helsinki, our server is leading the charge in sustainability with its cutting-edge use of wind and hydropower. In partnership with Oomi Oy, a Finnish energy company known for its commitment to renewable energy, we’ve set our sights on a future that’s as green as it is innovative.
We understand that every watt counts, which is why we meticulously measure the power usage of all our hardware and network components in-house. This not only ensures maximum efficiency but also serves as an essence in our selection process, enabling us to choose components that align with our vision of a more sustainable tomorrow. With every investment decision we make, we’re taking a step closer towards a greener, cleaner world for all.
