About 2% of the total energy consumption worldwide is caused by IT Data Center. Therefore, improving the efficiency with which energy is consumed is very important to IT-SERVICES.
IT-SERVICES participated in an EU initiated program on reducing energy consumption and had all WU’s Data Centers carefully inspected. The energy consumption caused by servers, storage systems and network components was checked as well as the energy consumption of the infrastructure components.
We are proud to announce that WU was one out of two organizations in Austria that fully meets the requirements of the "Code of Conduct for Efficiency in Data Center" of the EU in terms of the energy efficiency.
