GalaxyVisions Commits to Conserve the Environment

November 17, 2010 by  

Web Hosting ServicesBrooklyn, NY – GalaxyVisions, a managed web hosting, dedicated server, colocation, and shared web services provider announces today its commitment to further its efforts to ‘going green’ and becoming more environmentally responsible in its data center operations. GalaxyVisions is also a proud member of Green America’s Green Business Network ™ and will undertake numerous steps to conserve energy in order to provide more eco-friendly solutions.

One of GalaxyVisions’ eco-friendly efforts to save power is accomplished by the use of high powered exhaust fans and filtration systems which allow it to utilize the outside air throughout the winter months as its primary cooling system.  This allows GalaxyVisions to shutdown its four primary air conditioning units which are not the traditional glycol systems used by the majority of data center facilities, which are unable to be shutdown. This practice will save power on Brooklyn’s Con-Ed Grid, thus enabling Con-Ed to distribute power to more residential areas.  Additionally, GalaxyVisions plans to decrease the temperature in its data center from 75 to 64 degrees allowing servers to work more efficiently, thus reducing the draw on CPU power and lowering energy consumption. By decreasing the temperature within the datacenter, GalaxyVisions, is able to save on energy costs and invest more funds into new technological advancements for the data center.


According to network security and product development consultant Matthew D. Sarrel, CISSP, data centers tend to be overbuilt to accommodate a maximum load of running servers. As data centers do not typically operate at peak loads, it is therefore possible for some air conditioning units to be shut off in the colder months of the year. In addition, newer data center equipment can be run safely at higher temperatures than some of the older models, so eco-friendly efforts are furthered by keeping the temperature at a higher setting resulting in significant cost savings.

“GalaxyVisions’ commitment to going green will not only benefit the community, but also the environment,” states Ray Sidler, CEO of GalaxyVisions. “In a time where power and energy consumption are rapidly increasing to meet equipment needs, GalaxyVisions is working to reduce its carbon footprint.  As a dedicated member of the Brooklyn community, GalaxyVisions works hard to provide efficient and socially responsible data center solutions.”

As a leader in the web hosting market, GalaxyVisions offers over 15,000 square feet of secure data center space. GalaxyVisions can accommodate any size client or service provider by offering fully redundant colocation options in its New York City facility.  Clients can also connect to multiple Tier-1 Internet providers and carriers for secure, high-speed interconnections and peering within the data center facility.
