Having reliable and high performance computing power is a crucial aspect of running your business effectively and competitively. It is also highly energy intensive.
As the digital age grows and is evolving at unprecedented rates, one of the biggest environmental challenges facing ICT is the rapidly increasing quantities of electricity required to power and cool data centres.
“Digital transformation drives demand for data centre capability and also drives the need for innovation in energy efficiency. Our goal is to drive down the impact of the ICT sector through enabling technologies that help reduce the share of emissions produced by the sector. In addition to lower carbon emissions, being energy efficient also delivers business benefits by reducing operational expenses for our customers.”
– Mike Foster, CEO, Fujitsu Oceania
When it comes to data storage, we’ve placed the environment at the forefront of all of Fujitsu’s business decisions and operations. We’ve also invested heavily in building and refurbishing data centres to meet our environmental goals.
We’ve designed our data centres using a stringent set of environmental principles and as a consequence they are among the most energy efficient in the world. All our major data centres are certified to NABERS Energy for Data Centres rating, which provides a way for data centre energy efficiency to be externally validated against a standard by an independent government assessor. NABERS have assessed that Fujitsu’s centres are achieving an efficiency of 33% higher than market average. Every year we save over 34 Gigawatt hours of energy and 30,611 tonnes of carbon - equivalent to 1,700 homes – compared to the market average data centre.
“Fujitsu’s leadership is to be commended, and is an example of business acting to drive big savings, both in terms of energy costs and carbon.”
- Luke Menzel, NABERS National Steering Committee Member and Energy Efficiency Council CEO
Fujitsu and our customer Australia Post explain why we value NABERS Energy for data centre ratings.
Fujitsu targets the achievement of an average 4.5 Stars or greater NABERS energy rating and a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.5 across our data centre portfolio by 2020.
Testament of our impressive environmental achievements, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand has been awarded two leading awards in the 2013-2014 Longhaus Australian Data Centre Providers Pulse report. The Peak Vendor Award for the most comprehensive data centre offering and the Green Star Award for market leading sustainability practices.
