AVIATOR Watches and 1&1 focuses on green energy
As the first German web host 1&1 covers published on 1 December 2007 only electricity from renewable sources like wind, hydro and solar power as part of the international certification scheme for renewable energy, RECS. In addition to the high-performance data centers are also two office buildings in Karlsruhe, where about 1,500 employees work, is supplied with electricity from renewable energy sources. The “green power” refers 1&1 of the Stadtwerke Karlsruhe.
We use energy efficiently
1&1 will not only consume but clean power, but a total of as little energy. Therefore we use for many years particularly efficient power supplies with less than 20 percent of heat loss and losing our servers to redundant components. And starting at outside temperature 10 degrees, we cool our data center via free cooling, do not use energy-hungry compressor. The software can help to save power: The operating system has developed web hosting 1&1 based on a so-called Linux distribution itself, so that can be managed on a computer data of up to 10,000 customers. This saves resources.
