Carbon Neutral Energy
Most datacentres provide the cheapest electricity possible to their customers and offer little flexibility of energy supplier. We negotiate with the facilities management teams of the datacentres we use, and where possible we buy green electricity to supply our equipment. Otherwise we calculate our total carbon emissions and offset them with local schemes.
Nearly all the energy going into servers gets turned into heat. Our datacentres use inverter-driven air conditioning and high efficiency uninterruptible power supplies to get the most out of the energy we use. In winter our office is warmed by heat recovered from the server room.
Virtualisation and Server Sharing
Other companies run their servers at around 25% load — for only a little more energy consumption, these servers could do far more work! We virtualise our servers to increase utilisation, so that our servers get maximum energy efficiency, while balancing customer needs for increased server performance.
Lifetime Warranty Equipment
Most computer hardware has a limited warranty period, and it is common practice within the IT industry to replace equipment as soon as it is out of the warranty period. Where possible Faelix purchases equipment with a lifetime warranty to minimise equipment turnover.
To ensure reliable service, Faelix either extends warranty with the original manufacturers, or purchase and hold spares on-site. Faelix's expertise in delivering high-availability systems is used to build "resilient clusters" so that failure of an out-of-service component won't affect your business.
Travel and Transport
We use public transport as much as possible. We never use planes, even for personal holidays. Our cars have small engines and average over 40mpg. All calculated emissions from travelling are carbon-offset.
Discount for Green/Eco Projects
If your business shares the ecological ideals of Faelix, you can take advantage of up to 10% discount on listed hosting prices.
Our finances are ethically invested using the Co-operative Bank.
Faelix Limited is an independent, privately owned, small business. We answer to our customers, not our shareholders.
Rather than spending on commercial software Faelix uses free, open source software. Faelix contributes to the open source community because so many open source projects have helped our business succeed. We believe this approach benefits software and society far more than making monopolistic software companies even richer.
All our services are provided by staff based in Manchester, UK.
