Reducing the carbon footprint
Mark Mulcahy – Waterford Technologies
One of the biggest challenges a data centre can face is meeting corporate and government environmental targets. The very nature of data centres – large servers constantly running and requiring cooling – means that energy is always being used, meaning all that storage can have a very large carbon footprint. With companies increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of their business, green targets can be a key influencer when choosing a data centre partner.
Waterford Technologies File Analyzer and File Archiver software can help your data centre’s green credentials shine through – helping you to appeal more readily to clients who make environmental concerns a priority. Our system efficiently sorts your data, helping you assess how it is best kept – including cloud-based options – so that you can store it more responsibly, making you less overly-reliant on energy draining physical storage formats. This can help you achieve the green targets of both your own business and that of your clients so everybody’s happy.
What’s more, Waterford Technologies is so confident of its own green credentials, it has applied for Triple E Product Approval from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) – a register of energy efficient products that are the best in their class to give consumers assurance that they are purchasing a highly energy efficient product.
