DNS Made Easy Continues Efforts on Energy Savings
September 26, 2013 by FindMyHost News
Web Hosting Services – Reston, VA – DNS Made Easy (dnsmadeasy.com), the leading provider of enterprise IP Anycast managed DNS, announces their 2014 energy savings initiative. Since 2009, when DNS Made Easy started their initial energy savings plan, the company has become the industry’s leader in energy conservation.
The company is committed to continuous efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. During the summer of 2013, DNS Made Easy invested in further energy saving plans in order to raise awareness about the environment, demonstrating the positive role that DNS companies or other Internet Service Providers can play in green initiatives.
DNS Made Easy is able to invest in energy savings because, unlike other enterprise DNS companies, the company is committed entirely to its clients and making smart financial choices. There are no hidden costs for a marketing team or sales force, so DNS Made Easy focuses on positive plans for saving the planet.
There are numerous ways in which DNS Made Easy has invested in energy conservation. First, the company purchased energy efficient hardware, replacing older hardware that was not as environmentally friendly. For example, the company purchased 60w CPUS to replace previous 90w CPUs. With over 60 CPUs per POP, that is an immediate 1.8kW in savings. Not only do the newer CPUs require less energy, they are also more powerful. Second, whenever it is possible to do so, they use cloud computing efficiently and economically. When DNS Made Easy requires a large data load or processing power, they activate to multiple cloud instances to handle the high load. During the slow time these instances are deactivated so they are no longer consuming energy for DNS Made Easy. This is in stark contrast to using large infrastructures of equipment that demand high energy levels all the time for computing power that is only needed on a temporary basis. Third, DNS Made Easy uses data centers all over the world. It is a well-known fact
that these facilities consume far more power than a typical building. With these green initiatives in mind, DNS Made Easy’s facilities use preferred 208 volt, 3-phase power systems. The power configuration is the most efficient in a data center, generally requiring fewer circuits per cage, and that means fewer power cables that can obstruct air flow.
DNS Made Easy even does little things – little things that add up – in their offices. For instance, the company installed sensor lights in their offices, so that the lights go off automatically when movement halts in a room.
None of the energy saving initiatives hurt the company’s performance or reliability. In fact, it helps increase ROI for their clients.
DNS Made Easy’s investing is also paying off for its clients, especially when it comes to having the fastest speeds in the industry. For the months of July and August, the company outpaced all other DNS services in speed.
“We are committed to our clients, and we are committed to energy savings. Since we have a dedicated staff and don’t bother with sales gimmicks, DNS Made Easy is able to give back and put time and money into green initiatives. This is very important to me, and to my staff,” said Steven Job, President of DNS Made Easy. “We encourage all other infrastructure or software as a service providers to look at their energy saving policies and to put forth a continuous effort to make things better.”
