Do you choose for Green Mini host? That is a green and responsible decision.
The Mac mini is not only more compact, but is also far more energy efficient than traditional servers.
This in combination with highly sustainable data centers makes sure you are choosing a green hosting solution
Mac mini: 4 reasons it is greener/span>
Low energy usage: the Mac Mini uses less than 20W of electricity when idle. This is only a fraction more than an energy saving light bulb. Try and compare it to ordinary, comparable servers. The Mac Mini even won an award in this field, the EPA ENERGY STAR.
Smart power adapter: converting the power ‘from the wall’ to the computer is usually highly inefficient. The Mac Mini however has a smart power adapter which keeps the waste of energy to a minimum
Energy efficient parts: the Mac Mini even has an energy efficient interior. The hardware parts like the processor and hard drive are highly energy efficient. And optimally combined with advanced software Apple has lowered the energy use even more.
Recyclable materials and efficient packaging: even the end of the Mac Mini life cycle contributes to a cleaner environment. Because the computer is so small and made of aluminum and polycarbonate it’s easily recyclable. Besides, the Mac Mini does not contain any traces of lead, PVC or environmentally harmful flame retardants.
Not just the end, but the beginning of the cycle is also environmentally friendly. With its efficient packaging the CO2 emission during transport is lowered significantly. A small detail with a big effect.
A climate neutral data center: EvoSwitch
EvoSwitch is a modern data center which focused on environmental consciousness right from the beginning. The data center collaborated with scientists from the TNO to apply all the technology they could to save as much energy as possible. Some examples of this technology are the Free Cooling, Cold Corridor, HF lights and green power. EvoSwitch has employed this technology successfully to save the climate and to conduct business in a socially responsible manner. Furthermore the use of all non-green electricity is compensated by planting trees.
