As much as we can, we encourage responsive purchase carefully selecting our suppliers. Eco-conception, energy consumption, product life, labels, etc... are some of our criterias deeply integrated to our purchase policy. We prefer purchasing long life equipment with the closest supplier to avoid to much transport.
Ecritel only chooses green oriented datacenters with a up to date technology for enhancing energetic efficiency, reducing environment impact watching indicators such as PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness), CUE (Carbon Usage Effectiveness) and WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness).
In our rooms
We work and propose servers’components with low electrical consumption and modular frame for improving density and CO2 rejection. We also avoid waste, and optimise air conditioning by canalizing the air with plates and also thanks to our "cold corridor" that reduces 10% of the energy consumption.
For 6 years, Ecritel is very much into virtualisation proposing virtualised servers (vmware, XEN...) for optimizing the physical equipement use. Indeed, sharing material resources helps reducing electrical waste. Virtualisation and cloud computing have numerous advantages and allow a 20% to 30% reduction of energy consumption.
Ecritel considers cleanup and recycling, and contribute to packaging recycling and selective sorting. Thus Ecritel aims at reducing its business activity impact on the environment.
