Green Data Centers: Sparkle’s experience
Sparkle, the global operator of the TIM Group, manages an extensive network of Data Centres in the Mediterranean area (4 in Italy, 4 in Greece and 1 in Turkey). And it is thanks to the integration of these Data Centers into the proprietary fibre optic network and the Mediterranean backbones that it is able to offer its customers a complete range of ICT solutions, from colocation to cloud, to connectivity services for global operators. Always with respect for the environment.
Sparkle’s Data Centers are managed based on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.
Sparkle replaces older equipment, which requires greater energy consumption, with new equipment able to support more efficient solutions, such as EFC (Evaporative Free Cooling), which reduce costs and ensure greater operational resilience. The buildings are designed and managed based on “green” principles, i.e. using the most advanced cooling techniques, but also ceilings and walls better able to manage temperature, use lithium-ion batteries instead of lead-ion batteries, low energy consumption LED lights, and more besides.
