Increasing demand for Getmapping data services has led to a move to a new data centre. The facility will not only supports greater performance but also has better green credentials. The latter has become an increasing concern for businesses and other organisations using online services, applications and data. As well as its own extensive aerial photography archive Getmapping hosts its own internet mapping applications and a complete range of Ordnance Survey professional mapping products together with the latest OS OpenData.
We have been hosting large datasets for over ten years now and as more of our business goes online the question of our environmental credentials has become increasingly important,” said Gavin Sullivan, Getmapping’s Technical Director.
Keysource says: This demonstrates that increasingly businesses are putting green credentials high on the agenda when selecting suppliers, which highlights the opportunity for companies to differentiate themselves by investing in efficient solutions.
In particular, we are seeing considerable demand from the co-location and IT hosting marketplace for data centres that are not only affordable and resilient, but also possess high levels of efficiency and performance. These organisations are taking advantage of our proven Ecofris cooling solution to minimise energy usage in order reduce emissions, so they can offer customers an industry-leading and environmentally responsible service.
