 What makes a #datacenter center greener and more energy-efficient? Look no further! We've curated a list of top four key approaches that are reshaping efficiency in the industry and leading us towards a sustainable future. Let's dive in!

1️⃣ Green Design Principles:
a. The opportunity for #sustainability is linked strongly to where you locate your data center. Look for proximity to #renewable energy sources, natural air cooling, to where staff and suppliers are located. 
Fit out with energy-efficient components, servers, and cooling equipment into your data center #infrastructure.

b. Follow the principles of Scope 3 - your facility is not just responsible for its ongoing carbon footprint but also for the footprint of all of the activity that went into building it and fitting it out (materials/resources, manufacturing, transportation to site)

c. Embrace green manufacturing techniques and optimise energy usage with features like synthetic white rubber roofs and low VOC carpets.

d. Make the most of natural light with energy-efficient windows and skylights.

Pro tip: The Green Grid, a nonprofit group, provides resources and best practices for energy-efficient data center design.

2️⃣ Leveraging Virtualization:
Boost efficiency by adopting #virtualisation technology. Consolidate multiple virtual servers onto fewer physical servers to optimise hardware usage, reduce energy demands, and maximise computing power.

3️⃣ Green Metrics and Assessment Tools:
Measure and track energy consumption, heat recycling, water usage, and overall environmental impact using green metrics and assessment tools.

4️⃣ Modular Data Center Designs:
Embrace modular designs for flexibility, scalability, and rapid deployment. Modular components enable efficient space utilization, easy upgrades, and cost savings. Minimize downtime during expansions or maintenance with the flexibility of modular design.
