As more enterprises focus on energy efficiency to cut data center costs, more are looking to providers with a solid sustainability strategy who can offer cost-effective, green data center options. For colocation customers, better use of energy delivers lower costs.
Our data centers are designed to require fewer construction materials to construct while delivering industry-leading PUE (power usage effectiveness) levels—resulting in a smaller carbon footprint when compared to similar data centers. Our current standards have delivered data centers with design PUEs as low as 1.12. We utilize water-efficient and free cooling technologies and tap into reclaimed water supplies where available to minimize our use of potable water. We continue to expand our ability to reduce the carbon footprint of our data centers as they become operational by pairing our facilities with sources of renewable energy.
