Shoden signs-up to data centres CoC
Server and storage solutions vendor Shoden Data Systems has become the latest UK signatory to the European Code of Conduct on Data Centres Energy Efficiency, the EU proposals that aim to provide guidelines for organisations to reduce data centres’ environmental and economic impact.
These voluntary guidelines provide a set of ‘best practice’ procedures, with the aim of bringing more stringent compliance measures into place in future. The Code also aims to educate the industry and improve understanding of energy demands within data centres, including use of servers, storage, power, and cooling equipment.
“As an environmentally-aware organisation, it is important for Shoden to show commitment to lowering energy consumption in data centres - and the resulting bills,” says Shoden Data Systems CTO Phil Jones. “The green aspect is an important credential to have.”
