Why Data Centres Are Going Green

Mar 13, 2008
Businesses, schools, hospitals and other major organisations are always in need of good IT systems and good quality IT support. With hundreds of client and patient information, these records need to stay safe and be managed so that if anything were to go wrong all records will be backed up. Many of the organisations opt towards data centre solutions. The data centres work by keeping a backup record of all the companies data and information should there be an emergency.

For people who are currently running their own business, or managing a large service organisation, imagine something happened to the building, say for instance a fire, that caused all of your computers to be destroyed and all of the information stored were lost. God forbid if such a thing did ever occur, but these things are unpredictable and it would be very unwise not to be prepared. This is where data centre solutions are imperative for the safe running of your business.

Turning towards data centre solutions is simply an electronic storage system that works with other companies to backup important data, plan and build their IT infrastructure, provide networking solutions and security. Larger organisations look towards data centres to store all information and act as a backup call should there be an emergency. It also provides training to staff for using various IT storage systems, as well monitoring the system.

The centres however, take up much of the land space and steps have now been taken to make data centre solutions more environmentally friendly, reducing the amount of power used and increasing space saving methods. Some of the steps suggested for environmental solutions are sharing data centres between companies that will help in reducing the space used; Carbon offsetting which is where servers are leased; and changing from AC power to DC power. These centres tend to consume a lot of power as they are running at a constant pace.

Other methods for environmentally friendly running of data centres are keeping the data centres at a cooler temperature and installing cooling sensors for when one part of the system rises above a certain temperature, the sensor will then work to cool down that part only. More companies are opting for a greener environment and have taken steps to reduce their carbon emission. Data centres are amongst the many organisations striving to reduce impact on the environment.

Global warming has been at the forefront of the media and action have been taken to instigate initiatives into reducing carbon emissions, reducing the amount of power used and decreasing the amount of energy and resources used.
