Green Web Hosting
Hyve are committed to making a positive contribution to the environment by being 100% carbon neutral.
Hyve are 100% carbon neutral. We achieve this using carbon offsetting.
We use carbon offsetting to balance out the release of carbon dioxide by our web servers and other equipment. In order to achieve this, we have partnered with some of the UK’s leading carbon reduction and offsetting organizations – our aim is to reduce what we can , and offset what we can’t.
Hyve plant forests in the South of England every year, helping to prevent climate change and creating a space for wildlife. We plant trees to cover the footprint of our offices and staff, but also enough to cover all of our client’s hosting.
We have carefully selected our data centres for their green credentials. Our primary data centre, Global Switch 2, is very energy efficient.
We use power efficient CPUs that are known for their cooling design. These processors offer 3 times higher performance per watt compared to older, more inefficient CPUs. Also, memory is responsible for consuming around 15% of data centre energy, so we use power efficient memory that consumes far less than regular memory.
Our SSD drives also consume significantly less power at peak load than traditional hard drives, less than 2W versus 6W. Their energy efficiency can deliver less power strain on the system, and provides a cooler computing environment.
Each blade server (16x blade servers per enclosure) shares 6 power supplies , which not only offers improved redundancy, but also offers substantial power savings because only 6 PSU’s are required for 16 servers (instead of 32).
