This website is hosted on a server located in Iceland. The site's response time performance is virtually indistinguishable from similar sites and highlights a major technology development in the battle against climate change, cloud technology. Cloud technology used strategically, allows companies to use clean energy as a factor in deciding how and where to locate their IT workload. In the traditional computing model this kind of decision just wasn't possible for many reasons. The rapid adoption of cloud technology owes much to it's ability to better manage asset utilization, resiliency, and innovation and while these new capabilities make operations more efficient and sustainable, they also allow for new flexibility to locate IT infrastructure and avoid Cloud's little discussed downside: air pollution. The Could's rapid growth has led to massive increases in electricity consumption. Increases that far exceed advances in the energy efficiency of processor chips that servers use to do their work. This consumption contributes to the overuse of fossil fuel because the vast majority of electric utilities today use fossil fuel to generat electricity and as such are a major source of GHG emissions. Energy security is now a primary consideration for decision makers seeking to mitigate operational risks in their business. Uncertainty over the rising cost and availability of electricity in the UK and EU in particular is rising. The ability of cloud technology to shift major power intensive operations like IT infrastructure to locations like Iceland with clean, available, low cost energy improves energy security while lowering operating costs.
- Eliminate /reduce IT related carbon emissions
- Improved energy security: long term power contracts of up to 15 years with low, fixed rates
- Reduced server operating cost resulting from low electricity rates
- Highlight the importance of corporate leadership through corporate action to combat climate change
CleanCloud™* is a service developed by CarbonZero IT in collaboration with our service partners that helps firms rapidly implement a clean energy strategy for cloud services. Our service partner, Nyherji, hf is located in Iceland and has built a cloud service infrastructure that is highly resilient, accessible, expandable, and powered from Iceland's 100% clean, renewable energy (geothermal and hydroelectric). From small businesses to large corporations we are able to provide the very latest cloud service support, e.g. infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), or private dynamic infrastructure services.
Please feel free to explore the site and learn more about our partners capabilities. Try the energy calculator to estimate the level of cost savings and carbon and water use reductions that are possible when your cloud workload is sourced with CleanCloud™.
