How can cloud hosting benefit the environment?
Cloud hosting can make a massive difference to our environment as our public cloud infrastructure has far less impact on CO2 emissions than traditional servers and hardware.
The energy saving in the cloud is also significant, by using shared computer resources among all our cloud customers, it greatly reduces power and carbon consumption.
If you imagine how much power it takes to run each dedicated server, not to mention the large power consumption from all of the air conditioning units that are essential to keep the servers running at the correct temperature. All this adds up, whether you have multiple servers in-house, or hundreds of servers in a data centre, it all has a negative impact on the environment. By moving to the cloud, we can reduce your carbon footprint and make massive energy savings.
On average, it is almost 90% more efficient than dedicated hardware and 60% more efficient than a private cloud environment due to multi-tenancy.
The CWCS public cloud is based on a multi-tenant architecture, which gives our customers their own VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) on a shared environment. With the virtualisation power of VMWare, our public cloud has enhanced optimised storage, runtime processing, pro-active load management and self healing, which maximises resources across all our customers, saving energy by using far less physical servers and power.
Multi-tenancy enables all our customers to run on a secure, shared infrastructure, creating massive economies of scale not possible with single-tenant, on-premises, or private cloud applications. Single-tenant solutions require dedicated resources like a physical server, where as a multi-tenant solution can offer the same performance but on a shared platform, with each 'tenant' having their own allocation of resources. The main benefit of our public cloud is its high availability, redundancy and scalability, as well as enormous energy efficiency.
