Who we work with

Cloud providers

We work with major public cloud providers to articulate the cost and energy usage differential between on premise data centres and the cloud environment for companies considering making the move.

Hardware manufacturers

ESG reporting and performance are key concerns for organisations large and small. We partner equipment manufacturers to deliver this with accurate analysis of enterprise server estates within customers’ data centres.

Publicly funded research projects

We have been full partners of the CEDaCI project since 2020 and are the representatives for Ireland on the Interreg West European Research project. Our contribution has been to provide training to SMEs on increasing circularity of data centre assets alongside performance and energy benchmarking analysis to feed the circularity compass.
