Use managed services - Sustainability Pillar

Use managed services

Managed services shift responsibility for maintaining high average utilization, and sustainability optimization of the deployed hardware, to AWS. Use managed services to distribute the sustainability impact of the service across all tenants of the service, reducing your individual contribution.


  • Migrate from self-hosted services to managed services. For example, use managed Amazon RDS instances instead of maintaining your own RDS instances on EC2, or use managed container services, such as AWS Fargate, instead of implementing your own container infrastructure.
