Why Co-locate with ECO DATA?
Apart from being a comprehensive data centre ECO Data centre aims to reduce the environmental impact of data storage and access through energy efficiency and making a tangible contribution to the New Zealand natural environment.
We achieve lower environmental impact than typical data centres by reducing energy costs and contributing in a positive way to the natural environment.
Our facility is lit by LED lighting, which has a significant energy saving over fluorescent strips.
Computers generate a lot of heat, which is removed from the facility using forced fresh air rather than refrigerant-cooled air except when outside temperatures are particularly high.
When we source new servers and components we try to minimise energy consumption as much as possible. We also use virtualisation to reduce the number of servers required, thereby decreasing energy demands.
We made the decision in 2016 to offset the remaining unavoidable environmental impact by making regular donations to the Native Forest Restoration Trust.
By co-locating your servers in the ECO Data centre you can be sure that you are taking an environmentally responsible approach to your data storage and management needs
