Future Hosting, a specialized VPS hosting and dedicated server hosting provider, has announced its support of recent efforts to minimize the energy use of data centers. Initiatives such as the last month’s introduction of the Energy Efficient Government Technology Actsponsored by Sen James E. Rich — and related efforts in the private sphere, are an important part of ensuring that data centers are designed and built to maximize energy efficiency.

US data centers consume an estimated 91 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity: enough to power New York City twice over. Energy use is expected to reach 140 billion kilowatt-hours in the next five years. The number of data centers is expanding rapidly, and in the interest of the environment, of energy security, and reducing the economic impact of excessive energy use, efficient data center technologies should be a core part of future infrastructure.

“As a heavy user of data center and server infrastructure, we're acutely aware of the typical energy consumption and utilization rates of the technologies that supports the interactive sites and applications we all take for granted,” said Maulesh Patel, VP of Operations of Future Hosting. “Future Hosting is committed to maximizing the energy efficiency of its operations, both because of the environmental impact, and to ensure that clients costs are minimized.”

Energy efficiency is not simply a matter of building more efficient data centers. Historically, server utilization across the industry has been poor. Maximizing energy use will require a concerted effort to deploy technologies that enable companies to improve utilization planning. Virtualization has already had a huge impact on server utilization levels, and with the growing popularity of automation of data center operations, we can expect to see a reduction in the number of zombie servers and poorly utilized hardware.
