Last quarter I wrote a blog post about how at Limelight, we pride ourselves on doing an excellent job for our customers while also doing our share in being green and reducing our carbon footprint.
As good corporate citizens, we have a responsibility to our customers, our investors, and the environment. As part of my role at Limelight, my team oversees more than 80 data centers, which produce almost 100% of our carbon footprint. We are also responsible for ensuring that we have enough physical infrastructure capacity to fulfill customer needs, while meeting our own internal efficiency goals.
Our team at Limelight has been working hard to improve in the following areas:
- Increasing capacity so that our customers’ delivery requirements are met. Software enhancements and innovation have contributed significantly to this increase in capacity.
- Ensuring reliability for our customers. We’ve seen record-breaking traffic and have achieved a new record for both peak bandwidth and petabytes delivered.
- Refreshing our technology by acquiring new servers, lowering fan speeds, consolidating server locations, providing internal efficiency and lessening of the impact on the environment.
We are very proud to see the positive impact of our continuing efforts.
The following chart is a sampling that shows how we’ve improved in our carbon footprint reduction and our capacity increase in various locations around the globe:

Stay tuned for more updates as I will be blogging again next quarter to share more of the great progress we’ve been making and will continue to make.
