As a data center server provider, innovation in energy management is a key distinguisher. Reducing energy consumption is a main driver not only from a corporate responsibility point of view, but also from a competitive angle. The modular data center design at EvoSwitch has proven to be a true winner when we look at reduction of energy consumption. The main contributor is the reduction of power that is required for the adiabatic cooling system in use.
Besides the technical innovation on the cooling units, tight management of capacity and load distribution helps to bring down the PUE values even further. Optimizing the load per data center module quickly brings down the load to a required optimum for our cooling systems. To achieve this, daily monitoring and analyzing is vital.
We are aware that data center providers consume a lot of energy. Therefore, it is also essential to look at the type of energy that we are using. The power requirement at EvoSwitch is catered by sustainable resources based on hydroelectric power and wind energy. Certificates by our electricity supplier guarantee that electricity is generated from renewable sources, thus reducing our carbon footprint.
As the demand for power from data centers will continue to grow, we at EvoSwitch strongly feel it is our responsibility to focus on energy management and innovation. The fact that we have done so for the last 7 years provides us with a great competitive edge. The more energy efficient we are, the less we impact our environment, and the less our customers pay for their energy bills–creating way for a win-win situation for all.
