General Green was asked to control the amount of energy consumption and reduce the data center's carbon footprint. According to Darren Bonawitz, 1102 GRAND co-owner, "Emphasis has been put on installing blanking panels to reduce cold and hot air from mixing in data centers, encouraging customers to employ virtualization to consolidate servers and minimize idle servers that consume energy, and deploying Energy Star certified networking equipment whenever possible."
