Green Your IT for Earth Day
Earth Day is quickly approaching and many business leaders have green on their mind. When moving in the direction of corporate sustainability, we often think of automatic lighting and faucets, removing phantom energy suckers such as desktop computers, monitors and printers left on when being unused or possibly greener cleaning products. These are all very important, but in truth, your servers could be pulling the largest energy load of running your business.
These physical servers are vital for a company’s viability and obviously can’t be turned off. So, what can you do? Glad you asked. Move to a green data center, and even better, move to a cloud hosting platform in a green data center. It really isn’t more expensive. Surprisingly, it should even be more cost effective.
