Green computing, green IT or ICT Sustainability, is the study and practice of environmentally sustainable computing or IT. This can include “designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems — such as monitors, printers, storage devices, and networking and communications systems — efficiently and effectively with minimal or no impact on the environment.

Sun-Evo choose to have green computing initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of our IT operations. Green ICT and its services present opportunities to deliver low carbon footprints and mitigate carbon emissions because of the unique ability to make energy consumption visible through its products and services.

Modern IT systems rely upon a complicated mix of people, networks, and hardware; as such, a green computing initiative must cover all of these areas as well. A solution may also need to address end user satisfaction, management restructuring, regulatory compliance, and return on investment (ROI).

There are also considerable fiscal motivations for companies to take control of their own power consumption; “of the power management tools available, one of the most powerful may still be simple, plain, common sense”. Datacentre facilities are heavy consumers of energy, accounting for between 1.1% and 1.5% of the world’s total energy use in 2010.

Energy efficient datacentre design should address all of the energy use aspects included in a datacentre from the IT equipment to the HVAC equipment to the actual location, configuration and construction of the building, so five primary areas on which to focus energy efficient datacentre design best practices:

  • Information technology (IT) systems
  • Environmental conditions
  • Air management
  • Cooling systems
  • Electrical systems

As a part of the reduction of the negative impact of your network on the environment, the use of refurbished equipment can play an important role. Reusing products and buying refurbished Network equipment is more environmental friendly than buying and implementing new Network equipment due to the following three reasons:

1. Increasing the life time of Hardware – this helps to reduce overall waste, CO2 emissions / Carbon footprint and related energy usage which would be wasted at recycling activities.
2. Reduction of CO2 emissions / carbon footprint and energy usage due to the simple fact that less new products and parts are produced / manufactured and shipped ( supply of raw materials, logistical movements, energy usage during the production processes).
3. Less Logistical movements – from Source location of raw material to processing plant, from processing plant to product parts factory, from product parts factory to assembly factory, from factory to warehouse, from warehouse to distributor, from distributor to reseller, from reseller to Customer, from customer to trash company.

At Sun-Evo, we help our clients to analyse energy usage and related CO2 emissions, increase life time of hardware, to reduce CO2 carbon footprint and energy usage, to recycling according to the WEEE legislation.
