Sustainability & The Well-Architected Framework Review

Faced with an increasing number of sustainability targets and ESG initiatives for reducing carbon footprints, CTOs, architects, developers, and operations teams are asking:



How can we minimize the environmental impact of running cloud workloads? 



The answer begins with understanding - and measuring - the energy consumption and the environmental impacts of the services you are using.

Sustainability and Cloud Architecture

Adopting cloud architecture for your applications already lowers your impact on the environment, from leveraging shared resources to streamlining operational efficiencies


Here are some of the ways you can do even more to optimize sustainability: 

  • Select an efficient programming language

  • Adopt modern architecture patterns

  • Use efficient data storage techniques

  • Deploy to correctly sized and efficient compute infrastructure 

  • Minimize requirements for high-powered end-user hardware

  • Use managed services

  • Reduce the downstream impact of your cloud workloads

Are you applying these sustainability design principles to your workloads?
