PUE? What does this mean?

PUE is short hand for Power Usage Effectiveness.

PUE is essentially how effectively a data centre uses its power; more specifically how much of the power is used in running the computing power within the facility as opposed to running core services such as cooling and related overheads. As close to 1.0 as possible is best, which would equate to near total efficiency.

Our industry-leading evaporative cooling system means the London Central data centre enjoys a PUE of just 1.12, considered to be exceptional in data centre circles, and something we are very proud of. Both our impressive green credentials and financial savings associated with this figure are passed onto our customers.

Further to this, our energy supply is 100% renewable!
