Sustainability pillar

The sustainability pillar focuses on environmental sustainability.

Sustainability in the cloud is a continuous effort focused primarily on energy reduction and efficiency across all components of a workload by achieving the maximum benefit from the resources provisioned and minimizing the total resources required. This effort can include:

  • The initial selection of an efficient programming language.

  • The adoption of modern algorithms.

  • The use of efficient data storage techniques.

  • The deployment of correctly sized and efficient compute infrastructure.

  • The minimization of requirements for high-powered end-user hardware.
