EU Code paves way for ‘Data Centre 2.0’

Migration Solutions says next generation data centers will be greenest yet

London, UK: The agreement on a pan-European ‘green’ Code of Conduct for Data Centers now paves the way for a new generation of facilities which will raise the bar on power efficiency and use of renewable energy sources.

Speaking at this week’s Data Centers Europe conference Alex Rabbetts, Managing Director of Migration Solutions, says: ‘As we plan the first data centers under the new Code of Conduct we’re looking a new ways of doing things – this is ‘data center 2.0’, a leap forward in the way we use power and the efficiencies we deliver. The next generation will be the greenest data centers yet.’
The European Code of Conduct for Data Centers, which has been in place since the start of this year, has the support of ninety-six business participants and endorsers, of which Migration Solutions is one. The Code standardizes the measurement of power consumption, utility and efficiency in the data center and encourages best practice across the sector.

Migration Solutions has participated in the development of the Code of Practice since its inception and welcomes its deployment as a clear indication that the industry is ready to address the issue carbon emissions and power consumption, which can be fifty times greater in data centers than comparable office space.

Alex Rabbetts says: 'The greener data center is the key issue for the industry today. It is vital that we have our own house in order so we are ready to play a significant role in the development of the growing number of environmental ‘smart society’ projects, incorporating smart grid, smart cities and smart transportation projects, all of which rely on data processing and data centers for their success.’
