By using a hosted technology solution from Legal Software Systems, Inc. (“LSS”), law firms no longer need their own file servers.  Each hosted server at LSS can support dozens of law firms concurrently.  For every law firm using a hosted solution, one less server computer needs to be manufactured, packaged, delivered, powered and eventually disposed of.

A typical “energy efficient” server draws about 125W of power, on average, throughout the day.  Since most servers are left running 24 hours a day, the average daily power consumption would be around 3,000 watt hours (125W * 24 hours).  The average monthly power consumption would be 90,000 watt hours. 

If just ten small law firms shut down their servers and switched to a hosted solution, the power savings alone would be 900,000 watt hours (900kWh) each month.  That’s enough energy to power a small single-family home! 

Of course, LSS has servers that require power, and the internet uses resources as well.  And this should be factored into the equation.  But considering that LSS can easily achieve 20:1 server consolidation ratios (or better), this example is easily on the conservative side.

And that’s just the savings associated with powering a file server.  Energy and other resources required for manufacturing, packaging, delivery and eventual disposal of computers can be saved as well.

The point is, not only do hosted solutions provide a great service to customers, but they also contribute to a greener environment.
