Uptime Institute names ‘Global Green 100’

data-centerThe US-based Uptime Institute this week announced its list of “Global Green 100,” the top corporations to demonstrate “significant energy efficiency achievements” at their data centres.

The 100 companies will be officially named and recognised on 15 April, during the Green Enterprise IT Awards ceremony in New York.

“Only 1 to 2 percent of total energy consumed in a data center produces useful computing,” said Kenneth G. Brill, executive director of the Uptime Institute, an IT-focused think-tank. “The rest covers overheads and inefficiencies tied to technology choices, service level agreements and the way the IT is managed. In an era of increasing energy scarcity and escalating costs, corporations cannot afford to ignore these losses. The companies included in the Global Green 100 have showed an exemplary commitment to improving their data center operations, not only reducing their carbon footprints, but also realizing significant financial savings.”
