Make Your Business Eco Friendly With The Cloud

BY Rebecca | 10 December, 2014 | no comments

There are many ways that you can make your business a little more eco-friendly. If you want your business to be more environmentally friendly, then try cloud computing. Offering a wide range of benefits, cloud computing is a fantastic alternative to a typical computer and internet set-up.

Cloud computing refers to the storage, processing and management of data that is carried out solely on the Internet. Cloud computing uses a network of remote servers hosted online. At first glance, cloud computing may not seem all that environmentally friendly, but actually using secure cloud services can make your business much more environmentally friendly.

Making your Business more Environmentally Friendly with Cloud Computing

    • You use Less Machines: Cloud computing can significantly reduce the amount of hardware that a company needs to use. This, in turn, reduces the amount of electricity that your business needs to use. With cloud computing, servers are shared, so they use fewer machines. Also, with cloud computing your business will only need an Internet connection to access data and other resources, as everything is virtualized and done online. This again decreases the amount of energy that your company needs to use.


    • More Efficient Equipment: Cloud computing not only uses fewer machines, but the equipment that it offers is also more efficient. Data centres used by cloud computing companies have more resources, which allow them to use more energy efficient equipment and machines. All of the latest smartphones, tablets, laptops and personal computers are able to function effectively with other cloud devices, and the same data can be displayed and updated on each simultaneously. This happens when the device is set to automatically retrieve date, or is pushed to you by another online system.
  • You only use the Resources you need To: Sometimes, businesses use more resources that they need to, which wastes energy. Often, business need to have more servers in the case of peak data loads, which means that extra servers are simply going unused. Cloud-computing providers, however, can allocate extra resources only when they are really needed, meaning that no machines are wasted.
