EU Code of Conduct for Data Center Energy Efficiency

Making a data center environmentally friendly and energy efficient offers a range of advantages for the operator. The reduction in power consumption offers cost benefits which can increase margins or flow on directly to the end customer, making the data center more competitive. Being green is also a selling point for enterprise customers interested in reducing their carbon footprint. Becoming green also means time spent optimizing processes and improving systems, a challenging but rewarding process.
