The Green Ones
When it comes to data centers, green is hot. Many data centers are now being built from the ground to run on reusable energy, cut down on the amount of energy, and reduce the carbon footprint. Here are a few interesting facts we uncovered in the last year.
100% carbon neutral
100% renewable energy (geothermal and hydroelectric power)
100% freely cooled (Iceland’s ambient temperatures to provide free cooling)
100% solar powered (powered by 120 on-site solar panels which generate electricity for the entire infrastructure)
100% carbon free
emissions saved each year by the solar panels:
34,488+ pounds of CO2 (greenhouse)
50.6+ pounds of Nitrogen Oxide (smog)
37.4+ pounds of Sulfate (acid rain).
The Safe Ones
Data centers have always had to be secure. They also have had to be safe. Here’s a few interesting notes about one of the data centers that could rival Fort Knox.
