As part of our 2008 'Letterland Goes Green!' initiative, we have moved web host to ensure that our impact on the environment is as small as possible. Our service provider, Rackspace®, takes caring for the environment seriously and runs several initiatives that we are proud to be part of.
The company became one of the UK's first IT hosting companies to offer carbon neutral hosting through tree planting in October 2006 when it partnered with the ITF, the world's longest-standing tree planting charity. So far it is planting between 300-400 trees a month and has already filled two sites in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Rackspace also uses energy efficient Dell AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon servers which have low voltage processors, SFF hard drives and DDR2 memory, meaning they consume less power than prior server models.
