Our motto is Gr€€ner for you and Your Environment, so our main objectives are to provide our clients with green, energy efficient IT solutions, which will save our clients' money and help the environment simultaneously by significantly reducing the amount of power consumed by their IT equipment. we will help you save money on your IT, so you have more in your pocket. We achieve this by offering energy efficient IT equipment across the board, from file servers to PC's, network equipment to cloud services. We recently saved one of our customers, a 15- person company, €4,000 per year in power by implementing a green IT solution which comprised of overhauling their entire infrastructure. They had a large power hungry server, which hosted their files, email and several other vital business functions. They also had and IP phone system with numerous handsets. In order to reduce their annual power bill, we replaced their power hungry file server with a powerful but still very low power consuming NAS (Network Attached Storage) server. We moved their email services, business databases and CRM to cloud-based providers. Lastly, their phone system once again was moved to a cloud-based provider. By utilising the many cloud services available currently and a more power efficient server, the employee desktop PC's do not have to be as powerful to run all their daily applications, therefore they are low power consuming. It also means that there is no longer a need for their phone handsets. Their PC's are now their telephone handset, which is made possible by using a piece of cloud-based software. Just imagine how much money Green Cloud Computers could save you and your company!
