Over the past few years, we are seeing a trend of increased social and environmental responsibility from all kinds of businesses. It’s a reflection of something that is becoming more important to consumers, and companies are taking note.
When we first thought about the kind of hosting company we wanted to be, one idea that resonated with us is that we could offer a greener, more socially responsible kind of hosting, while also providing a better product and doing so at a competitive price point.
How does it all work? We thought you’d never ask.
All servers from CanSpace are powered entirely by 100% Canadian-generated green energy. Power comes directly from the Beauharnois hydroelectric generating station in Quebec that is less than 300 meters away. The data centre is also cooled directly by the hydro-dam itself, and does not require wasteful air conditioning. All of this results in a claimed Power Usage Effectiveness of less than 1.1.
Established in 2012 and powered entirely by green energy, the tier four-quality datacenter presently houses some 30,000 servers that collectively generate one terabyte of data per second, and that is growing. By choosing CanSpace not only are you supporting the Canadian energy sector, you are also choosing to have a green carbon footprint.
The best part? By being so energy efficient, we are able to save money on utilities, and these savings we can pass directly on to the customer!
