About this talk

Everyone is aware of the importance of using renewable energy in data centers. But there is much more that data centers can do to support sustainability initiatives in order to give clients a solid feeling of being a good corporate citizen. In this webinar, you’ll learn how you should evaluate the answers to these 3 questions that you should ask your colocation data center provider: • What are your approaches to sustainable usage of water and energy? -- How do you decide whether to use water for cooling, and if you do, how do you minimize its usage? What kinds of temperature monitoring technologies do you use to achieve optimal energy efficiency on the data floor? Do you follow ASHRAE recommended or ASHRAE allowable guidelines? • How do you trace your supply chain and recycling program to ensure sustainability best practices are followed? – Is everything you're buying carbon-neutral? Sourcing is important. For example, how was the aluminum used for this data center dug out of the ground? Do you use recycled materials for carpeting, counters, and other furniture items throughout the data center? What kinds of items do you and your construction partners recycle, and where do they go (hopefully not just to a landfill!)? • What are your future plans for sustainability programs? -- What advances in energy efficiency, space requirements, recycling, batteries, and sourcing will generate new ways to improve sustainability in the future?
