Going Green
posted on 2020-02-05 21:24:55

I'm always surprised when I see modern companies not using renewable energy sources as a matter of course. It seems so strange to me that they don't see that this is a really big draw, especially in the tech industry where at least 70% of us are weird hippies. The other day I decided to do a little research on my host's (DigitalOcean) offerings and the differences between the datacentre, and I was surprised to find out the following:

  1. DO does not have an easily accessible page about the green status of their datacentres
  2. Only one of their datacentres is easily verifiable as green (FRA1)
