Conscious
Cloud Hosting

Tilaa is your European cloud partner that actively tries to limit its impact on our environment. 

Let's take responsibility

The internet is one of the most significant polluters of the environment and as a cloud provider, we are well aware that we share some of the responsibility. That is why we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint as much as possible.

Tilaa works according to the 'reduce, reuse, and recycle' principle. We do everything we can to incorporate environmentally friendly solutions into all of our processes, which is fully consistent with this philosophy. We work in a BREEAM-certified sustainable building, recycle our hardware, and collaborate with partners who share our values.

Iron Mountain & Tilaa
The Climate Pledge

Tilaa works with Iron Mountain data centers. Iron Mountain is a member of The Climate Pledge and is active worldwide. The goal is to run on 100% clean energy by 2040, 100% of the time.

Iron Mountain in Amsterdam is a participant in a municipal project that returns residual heat to the municipality of Haarlem (Waarderpolder) and the data center is BREEAM certified. 

Do you want to know more about Iron Mountain? We spoke with Eric Lisica, Operations Director of Iron Mountain Datacenters in Haarlem, Frankfurt, and London, at the start of the corona crisis.

NorthC & Tilaa
Ambitions & collaborations

At NorthC, the ambitions are great and the collaborations clever. For example, the new data center in Groningen will be one of the first in the world to use green hydrogen to create a completely CO2-neutral emergency power supply.

NorthC is also working on a plan to supply (residual) heat to a childcare center, a sports facility, and a plantation company. In exchange for that heat, NorthC gets cold air back to cool the data rooms. This project's CO2 reduction is equivalent to the CO2 emissions of approximately 74 households.

A circular process
for all hardware

Tilaa chooses servers based on the power consumption per VPS delivered, allowing us to drastically reduce energy consumption. Furthermore, we only purchase new (energy-efficient) machines when more than 85% of our platform is occupied. This way, we avoid wasting resources while still leaving space for incidents and emergencies.

Is a server or other piece of hardware outdated? Then there are 3 choices. We recycle it with a partner, keep it as a testing machine, or send it to a new location such as donation or education.
