Thanks to the support of Green IT SIG, the Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and the Swiss Association of Telecommunications (asut) are now able to implement the electricity efficiency campaign for data centers with the campaign « Less electricity, more Efficiency in Server Rooms and Data Centers ».
Also, the campaign is now officially live: After the soft-launch in June, the website was revised and its usability improved. The website is currently available in German and French, and an Italian version is coming soon.
Recently, the SFOE informed through its media channels about the start of this electricity efficiency campaign and at the same time, asut spread the campaign by sending an announcement message to specialized IT media. Information from the SFOE can be found here and there is also a media announcement, which can be found here in German in French, and in Italian.
The campaign launches were made public via the social media channels, and we invite all interested parties to report the campaigns via their social media channels. Please note the following:
The official name of the campaign is « Less power, More Efficiency in Server Rooms and Data Centers ». Please use #centresdecalcul as a hashtag. An explanatory video was also produced for the campaign in German, French and Italian and you are invited to spread it further on your channels.
