Fujitsu Siemens Makes Green Offer To UK Data Centers
Fujitsu Siemens Computers says it can cut the energy costs, operating costs and space footprint of UK datacentres by at least 40 percent – and promises to pay ten thousand pounds to a charity every time it fails to hit that target, TechWorld reports.
FSC limits the offer to FTSE 350 businesses; other companies will have to pay.
FSC is under no obligation to disclose its failures. However it stipulates that participating companies must: “agree to allow Fujitsu Siemens Computers to use their name as a participant in the value study and to issue a press release detailing the top line results of the value study.” Perhaps potential participants will not relish the thought of FSC issuing a release saying, in effect, “Company X’s wildly inefficient datacentre has been identified by FSC.”
