Our hosting platform has been designed with a maximum use, no waste of resources mindset. Every aspect of our hosting platform is built to be as energy efficient as possible.
In addition to this, for every amperage we pull from the grid, we match 3 times that in the form of renewable energy via Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
Your website will be on our 300% green hosting platform. You can feel good that you’re helping make a difference by hosting on a platform that is eco-friendly.
The internet industry consumes enormous amounts of energy. The backbone of the internet are data centers which hold millions of large servers, stacked on top of each other in racks and they are powered up and running all day every day.
These servers consume enormous amounts of energy and to make sure that they do not over heat and fail, they are blasted with arctic temperature air all day every day.
In fact 40% of all of the energy used to power the internet is used to keep those servers from overheating.
Data centers worldwide all pull energy from whatever power grid they rely on. Most energy in our power grids are produced by carbon polluting sources.
In 2012 there were 500,000 data centers worldwide. Today there are over 8 million data centers worldwide, an increase of 16 fold in 7 years.
The Internet is the fastest growing carbon polluting industry and it will eclipse all other industries in terms of worldwide pollution.
Today, data centers account for 2% of the world’s carbon emissions, that is as much as the AIRLINE INDUSTRY!
But it doesn’t stop there.
Data Center pollution is expected to grow to 14% of the world’s carbon emissions, as much as the United States of America, by 2040.
This is a massive problem and it is only getting worse.
Vitalize.Ones’ Commitment to Help Solve This Problem
Since Vitalize.One first heard about this potential problem we were determined that something had to be done.
Vitalize.One affiliated hosting has been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as a Green Power Partner.
We work with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) in Portland, Oregon. “BEF” is a Green-e Partner.
We tell BEF how many servers, personnel, etc. that we have and they calculate our yearly energy consumption and carbon footprint. We then have BEF purchase RECs 3 times as much than we have consumed, and we put that energy back into the grid.
This matches the energy we consume. This is our commitment to the environment and to our clients and customers; and has been since the beginning.
We would love to earn your business. We hope that you will consider us for any existing or future hosting that you may need. Vitalize.One is certain that you will be impressed by our services and our team.
