Sustainability and cloud computing go hand in hand. Cloud computing’s ability to share resources naturally leads to more efficient use of those resources. This sharing model gives cloud computing its ability to provide sustainability in the wide, but we must optimize the use of those assets to provide sustainability in the narrow.
The goal is to optimize cloud computing costs using finops and the tools that drive these processes. At the same time, these tools also help maximize the sustainability of our cloud deployments. Indeed, moving to public cloud platforms is a half measure toward increasing sustainability. You’ll find the best carbon benefits by optimizing cloud resources, which simultaneously means optimizing for cost efficiency. They are tightly coupled, for the most part.
