Internap Network Services Dallas Data Center Receives Green Globes Certification
Feb 24, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Internap Network Services Corp., a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, announced that its Dallas data center has received Green Globes certification, following a detailed review process by the Green Building Initiative.
According to a release, the achievement marks the first Green Globes certification of a public data center in the state of Texas.
Internap's Dallas data center is a facility that provides IT Infrastructure services, including managed hosting, colocation and a global, performance-optimized IP network, backed by a 100 percent uptime Service Level Agreement to the area's diverse range of enterprises. Opened in December 2011, the data center serves customers with 55,000 square feet of net-sellable floor space that incorporates efficient design and operational practices from the ground up.
A green building guidance and assessment program, Green Globes helps commercial building owners advance environmental performance and sustainability through an online assessment and site visit and evaluation by an independent, third-party evaluator. To achieve Green Globes certification, Internap adhered to numerous standards including consuming fewer fossil fuels, reducing greenhouse emissions, conserving water, reducing other forms of pollution, minimizing impact on the land surrounding the building and offering a better working environment for occupants.
"Tremendous energy usage accompanied by unique requirements can make data centers a difficult fit for sustainability programs. However, the new construction project for the Internap data center in Plano, Texas, is a great example of sustainable success in the design and construction of a commercial building of this type," said Glen P. Haydu, GGA, Green Building Initiative. "Internap did an outstanding job of maximizing energy and resource efficiencies as well as creating an environmentally-sound working space for its employees."
Green Building Initiative is a nonprofit organization, whose mission is to accelerate the adoption of building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings by promoting credible and practical green building approaches for commercial construction.
