Mail2World Announces Completion of Green IT Initiatives
Los Angeles, Calif., August 17, 2009
Mail2World, Inc., a global provider of advanced Internet messaging and collaboration services, today announced the company has achieved the objectives of its green IT initiatives. The company’s efforts have resulted in reduced costs and energy consumption for all Mail2World customers while reducing Mail2World’s carbon footprint.
“Mail2World prides itself on taking responsibility for minimizing our company’s impact on the environment,” states Mail2World Executive Vice President Youssef Abed. “To achieve our green IT goals, we’ve had to consider many aspects of our operations, such as reducing our carbon footprint, using energy more efficiently, recycling servers and going green with our internal print services. We worked especially hard to integrate green strategies into our Hosted Messaging Platform infrastructure, so our customers can rest assured that their email service is environmentally conscious.”
Mail2World uses SAVVIS data centers, which are among the most energy efficient in the industry. SAVVIS facilities are designed to operate at top performance per watt of power, and computer rooms are designed to minimize cooling efforts through the use of cabling standards and hot and cold aisles. SAVVIS also promotes cloud computing and virtualization, which assist in reducing Mail2World’s carbon footprint.
“Mail2World configures our servers to draw less power than traditional solutions and to use that energy more efficiently,” comments Mail2World’s Senior Network Manager Julian Tang. “Most of our servers are reused, and if a server can’t be reused, we send it to one of our partners for eco-friendly recycling instead of relegating them to landfill.”
Mail2World, Inc., (www.mail2world.net) designs, delivers and supports an award-winning suite of carrier-class, Web-based, private-label messaging and collaboration services. With the richest feature set in the industry, Mail2World's customer base includes hundreds of reputable brands and prominent organizations from around the world, such as publicly-traded corporations, telecom carriers, mobile operators, and some of the most-recognized universities and online social portals.
