dotmagazine’s Judith Ellis talks to ebrc's Bruno Fery about the advantages of going green.
- Bruno, can you tell me a bit about the Code of Conduct? What is the goal of the European Code of Conduct for data centers?
- So what are the biggest challenges for data center operators, if they want to meet these guidelines?
- What are the advantages of going through the process?
- Do you have any information about the general level of acceptance of the Code of Conduct? How well it is accepted by data center operators?
- EBRC has been through this entire process, and you say it is an advantage to your customers. What measurable impacts do you have seen?
- And do you notice it in the costs?
- You said before that the European Code of Conduct covers energy efficiency for the data center facilities and separately energy efficiency for the IT. Where is the most power spent and where is the most power saved between the IT and the facilities?
