Running the internet takes a lot of electricity to keep all the servers, data stores and networking equipment powered up, and the same again to keep them all cool. To generate much of this electricity, fossil fuels such as coal and gas are normally burned.
Here at DOWO Digital, we are concerned to be greener!
Using one of our web hosting plans, your web site will be just about as green as it can be! Our primary UK data centre, is hosted at Gyron, and is 100% powered by electricity generated from renewable sources. Not a single watt of power comes from burning fossil fuel.
Not only do our servers hum along on renewable energy but also the facility uses as little electricity as possible to keep everything fully functional by highly efficient design. Hot air expelled from the servers is contained and directly extracted from the building, meaning the cooling systems can operate much more efficiently. The super-efficient water-based chillers additionally use ‘free cooling’ technology when possible: outside cooler air is pumped through the cooling system rather than wasting electrical energy by keeping the chillers running at full-speed.
