Verne Global Named 2013 Computerworld Honors Laureate For Sustainable Innovation

KEFLAVIK, Iceland, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verne Global, an innovative, UK-based developer of energy efficient data center campuses, has been selected as a 2013 IDG Computerworld Honors Program Laureate for implementing major IT sustainability initiatives. With the industry's first dual-sourced, 100% renewably powered data center, Verne Global is honored for reducing energy consumption in IT equipment and using green technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions.


With the exponential rise in compute demand, coupled with the instability in pricing of carbon-based fuel sources, Verne Global has built an environmentally friendly, competitively priced, data center campus that harnesses only renewable resources. Located on a former NATO site in Iceland, Verne Global's customers are able to take advantage of a fundamentally new approach in the data center market, in which clients achieve economic savings while minimizing environmental impact.  

"The data center industry is currently dealing with the rising and unpredictable cost of power coupled with concerns over carbon emissions. Verne recognized this challenge and has developed a unique solution that benefits both the industry and data center customers," said Jeff Monroe, CEO of Verne Global. "Verne is tapping into the advanced, renewable power grid in Iceland, allowing us to implement a flexible solution that answers the need for both energy efficiency and cost management. We would like to thank Computerworld for honoring our work in this endeavour."

Located in one of the only places where a data center can draw on two sources of renewable power – geothermal and hydroelectric – Verne Global is focusing on using this available energy in the most efficient way possible. As a result, the campus is one of the first to offer a green solution without adding a premium to power pricing. This allows business leaders to take comfort in knowing that power costs can be reduced by more than 60% with the added advantage of long term visibility to those costs.
