We're Eco Friendly
As one of the nation's fastest growing web hosting providers, we believe in the importance of letting our clients understand our commitment to eco-friendly policies.
Since 2010, we have made a concentrated effort to improve our carbon footprint in our data centers. Similarly, we have made efforts in our offices to reduce waste, increase recycling and stop the use of paper products whenever possible. Below, you can read more about our efforts and partnerships with environmental organizations.
Our Energy Efficient Data Center
Our Core Beliefs
One of our core beliefs is that it's better to reduce than to simply offset, especially when it comes to energy consumption. It's a fact that large data centers are necessary to the operation of any web hosting company. It's also a fact that most data centers consume large amounts of energy and that more than half of that energy is utilized for cooling and air conditioning.
First Green Data Center In Los Angeles
That's why (with our core beliefs in-mind) we've opened up the first-ever Green Data Center in Los Angeles, CA! By utilizing advanced Outside Air Cooling technology, we're cutting our cooling costs by nearly 70% and reducing our carbon output by more than 2,000 tons per year.
The Traditional Way
Traditional data centers run Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRACs) nonstop, cooling the hot air generated by the servers and recirculating it. This is NOT an efficient way to run your server rooms these days. As you can imagine, more energy is burned overtime to help a room that is already hot and getting hotter by the minute!
The New Way
Outside Air Cooling, instead, vents hot air out of the building entirely and brings cooler air in, only cooling it through the CRAC units when high outside temperatures or humidity makes it necessary. This new technology greatly reduces the energy consumed by the data center for cooling purposes. We're very excited to be the first data center in the Los Angeles area to utilize this green cooling method.
