Data analysis today requires computing power, in the form of compute cycles. This takes electricity to run, from devices themselves (laptops, desktops, tablets, phones) to internet devices (routers, access points, etc). Efficiency at every step of the process of shipping data from place to place, pre-processing it, accessing it, and presenting it requires electricity. Natural Data is committed to reducing our footprint on the environment, and aim to be carbon neutral. All the power we directly use is wind and solar generated.
We are looking for ways to expand our environmental benefit. From specific projects to clean waterways to server-side energy sourcing, we will continue to improve how we capture and employ energy.
