Our Servers are now Carbon Aware

Starting on the 25th July our servers are now carbon aware, meaning that all of the servers that host customer websites, email services, our customer management system, and even our phone system are configured to reduce carbon emissions.

With access to regional carbon intensity data, our servers will schedule the installation of updates and scheduled talks like backups and bulk processing of data at specific times of the day (when doing so may result in lower-carbon emissions because a higher proportion of electricity is coming from lower-carbon sources on the National Grid).

We’ve also made some changes to the power settings and other server settings to reduce power usage while maintaining the same high level of service you expect, and deserve to receive, from our hosting platform.
