Green IT Services from Tectre Consulting
The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and the requirement to provide company statistics to the UK Government around a commitment to reduce the carbon footprint means that many firms are looking for ways to show their activity in this area.
IT is a significant creator of green house emissions and the IT industry is said to be responsible for around 2% of worldwide CO2. For this reason, enlightened organisations have realised that much can be gained from understanding the energy usage within the data centre and from pinpointing ways to reduce it.
At Tectre Consulting we have industry experts who can assess the effectiveness of your energy usage within the data centre. They will work with your people to monitor your power usage and look at the effectiveness of the ways in which it is used both for the IT kit and for the cooling and air conditioning. This will give you a PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) figure for your IT systems as a baseline from which to start making your improvements. We will then work with you to manage taking incremental steps towards a more energy efficient data centre. We can also work with you to get your CUE (Carbon Usage Effectiveness) factors down to the minimum.
Tectre can also provide you with assessments of energy related to IT use outside of the data centre and can be involved in helping you to plan for improvements in your use of office based IT equipment.
Our team are capable of guiding you through the benefits of the IBM zEnterprise solution for Green IT, the current legislation and can help you to understand where you can use current guidelines to make savings on energy use for IT.
