Green Hosting Initiative

The data centre and hosting industries are rapidly becoming some of the largest contributors of greenhouse gases on the planet. In fact, a 2008 study suggests that data centers may surpass airplane transport as sources of CO2 emissions by 2020.

Our data centre's Green Hosting Initiative was launched in 2008 to make sure we're doing all we can to reduce CO2 emissions, minimize our carbon footprint, and to help replace and rebuild diminishing resources. Here are just a few of the steps we're taking:

  • Virtualization is the basis of our VPS and Dedicated series green hosting environments, uses far less energy by consolidating sites onto more efficient host machines, and allowing us to decommission hardware that is less environmentally-friendly.
  • All of our hosting solutions use only high-performance, low-voltage servers, reducing energy requirements and carbon emissions.
  • We recycle 100 percent of all recyclable hardware components and meets or exceeds environmental requirements for the disposal of all non-recyclable, hazardous components.
  • We contribute to reforestation projects at levels exceeding the overall draw of our http://www.jenkai.com/hosting/vps.html infrastructure by at least 10 percent.

Our green data centre build-outs reflect our strong commitment to the environment. This is part of the reason we have partnered with Coresite in our main East and West data facilities. Every Coresite facility maintains a low PUE number with some as low as 1.9.

Our "Green Hosting Initiative" project is ongoing, as we continually seek to find new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and to maximize whatever positive impact we can have on the earth.
