Digital sustainability

Digital sustainability is much more than just the digitisation of manual work processes. It is about increasing digital effectiveness to maximum capability so that energy consumption is minimised as much as possible.

At Netcompany, we put a lot of time and effort into optimising our digital effectiveness, hereunder the effectiveness of our data centre hardware. We regularly follow up on any hardware equipment that has reached its end of life and seek to replace it with newer and more energy efficient hardware. We make a great effort to have the best possible utilisation rate and no equipment is switched on without having an important business function. 

All of Netcompany’s IT equipment is state-of-the-art and some of the most energy efficient devices on the market, which keeps the energy consumption as low as possible.

We also continuously update our algorithms for automation of our digital processes, so that routines become faster and more efficient, subsequently leading to a lower energy consumption. We aim to have a very high level of virtualisation in our server environment, thereby gathering the most possible workloads on fewer energy consuming hardware elements. Today, our virtualisation rate is close to 95%.
