Is your business as environmentally friendly as you’d like it to be? Here at Interbacs we care a lot for our environment and do everything possible to ensure we protect it. It’s for this reason that we choose to base our main servers in Europe’s greenest data centre – Datadock.
So how can the servers be kept cool while maintaining being environmentally friendly? Well the building itself is built on top of one of Europe’s richest groundwater supplies and this is pumped up through the wells and transferred into the cooling system. Then to ensure efficiency and eco friendliness, only the exact amount of water is pumped up into the underground wells meaning energy consumption is reduced. Specially designed cooling aisles then circulate the cool air into the contained server rooms where it is circulated through underfloor systems, this means that cool air isn’t wasted on redundant parts of the building while keeping the servers at the optimal temperature.
This normally uses up 60% of a data centre’s power consumption, but due to the use of its groundwater, Datadock cuts this by 66%. On average it works out that around the same amount of CO2 datadock saves, is roughly the same as the amount of CO2 that over 119,000 trees remove from the earth’s atmosphere each year.
In terms of powering itself the centre uses a collection of generators and batteries that are integrated among the UPS and kept in separate fire safe rooms. In case of a rare power failure then the centre has an adequate number of backup generators and in Interbacs case we have servers that run parallel in 2 other different locations – these servers act as a back up to keep all our systems up and running in case that one ever fails, this helps us to maintain an uptime of over 99%.
Security is also crucial at Datadock, the servers are kept behind stringent security checks that mean unauthorised personnel are unable to even get into the building. If they do manage to get past the perimeter fence, CCTV and 24/7 security guards then the servers are protected in rooms that require a finger print to get access beyond the door. All this maintains a high level of security at the centre.
Interbacs are proud to say that our servers are based at Datadock and we hope to continue our green approach in order to remain an environmentally friendly company.
