Here are a few of the strategic partners and carbon free web hosting companies we have chosen to work with due to our shared sustainability goals and their excellence in standards and service.
The Green House Data Center
The Green House Data Center hosts client websites on servers located at a 10,000 sq. ft. data center powered entirely through renewable wind energy. The highly available and secure facility is designed to operate at approximately 60% lower energy utilisation than comparable data centers. This translates directly into more computing power using less energy.
100% Renewable Energy
The entire facility is powered by wind generated renewable power. The company receives approximately 20% of its total power from the Silver Sage and Happy Jack wind farms located approximately 8 miles away from the facility. Green House Data also purchases the excess energy needs from the local power company and cover those by buying certified Green-e tags.
The facility will represent one of the largest wind powered public data centers in America with over 10,000 square feet of high-density computing facilities at full capacity. A 100% wind powered, green data center which leaves no carbon footprint on the environment.
