Web hosting provider ServInt announced a Green Initiative to demonstrate its commitment to climate-positive hosting. The initiative deploys multiple green methodologies to help customers operate with minimal environmental impact.
ServInt’s commitment to climate-positive hosting applies to its entire line of Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting services. Each of ServInt’s VPS services is backed by a commitment to offset the total carbon footprint of the VPS by at least 110 percent. ServInt accomplishes its carbon-offsetting goals through large-scale reforestation campaigns operated by American Forests (www.americanforests.org).
As part of its Green Initiative, ServInt announced that two of its most popular hosting services are now its most environmentally responsible offerings. ServInt’s SuperVPS and UltimateVPS services feature low per-capita energy consumption through efficient virtualization. These services also make exclusive use of Dell low-voltage server hardware, which provides high-performance while operating with a much smaller carbon footprint.
ServInt Founder and CEO Reed Caldwell said, “The web hosting industry is a major contributor to global energy consumption and carbon emissions. ServInt is committed to offering hosting services that have a positive effect on the environment.” Caldwell continued, “More businesses now realize that, besides harming the environment, energy-inefficient computing can adversely affect their company’s financial health and lead to serious competitive disadvantages. Our method of virtualization improves energy efficiency via the decommissioning of unnecessary physical servers and higher utilization of the remaining, more energy-efficient servers.”
