Going green with the Cloud

Going green with the Cloud

It is fair to say that as the economy recovers, Climate Change and Green Policies will have an increasingly profound impact on the way we live and work. Whatever your personal views on the causes of climate change and whether you believe it or not, it is fair to say given the current scientific evidence that pretty soon, policy makers will have to curb use of fossil fuels and this will impact business.
 
Technology also has a role to play in the solution, for example by using Cloud Applications for collaboration such as Skype, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Lync, Zoho Meeting and Citrix GoToMeeting you can meet with your colleagues, suppliers, prospects and clients virtually, without having to travel. This not only reduces carbon footprint but also lowers your travel costs and lessens travel time between meetings making you more efficient. In addition, moving to a Hosted or Cloud Computing environment can also significantly lower your use of power and energy. Rather than having your own server plugged in in the office, within a Datacentre many ‘virtual’ servers can be shared on a single ‘physical’ server, lowering the overall carbon footprint significantly.
