Firms fail to adopt green datacentres

Antony Savvas

Green datacentres are far from a reality for the majority of European companies, with only 36% saying they have plans in place to adopt green datacentre technology.

A survey of 440 firms conducted by storage firm ONStor found that in addition to a lack of take-up for green datacentres, more than 58% of firms had no firm plans to adopt them.

The lack of effort in adopting green datacentre initiatives comes despite 58% of firms revealing they had already run out of datacentre space, power and cooling capacity in the last few months.

Bob Miller, CEO at ONStor, said, "While the suppliers appear to be taking this issue seriously, the overall end-user community is some way behind."

Both IBM and Sun Microsystems have recently announced major green data centre initiatives.
