All disposable hardware is repurposed or recycled in accordance to Dutch law.
Green hosting and sustainable business practices are at the core of our working conduct. Hardware optimization and the use of renewable energy are only a part of this process. With every step of our production process we aim at maximum sustainability, ranging from hardware to paper and electricity.

Power Usage Effectiveness: the ratio of total energy used by a facility to the energy delivered to equipement.
Maintaining low PUE levels is very important to reduce the environmental impact of our hosting facilities. Additionally by focusing on reducing PUE levels cuts costs.

vBoxx collaborates closely with Evoswitch, their state of the art facilities ensure that we keep offering reliable and sustainable hosting.
An important factor in our sustainable business strategy, is the structure of our hosting-optimized efficient energy use. In other words, we do not work with individual servers but centralize our storage (cluster hosting).
