Carbon sensitive Cloud recommendations

In a previous release, we added information on estimated CO2e emissions and electrical energy consumed to our product catalog, which helps users understand and compare the carbon footprint of individual cloud services.

To support consultancies and their clients even more in implementing a carbon sensitive cloud strategy, we now integrate this information into our target architecture recommendations.

How does this work?

When defining your preferences for the cloud target architecture, you'll find a new setting for “Sustainability”. This setting allows you to express the importance of keeping the carbon footprint of selected cloud products in your target architecture as low as possible. As with other target architecture preferences, this can be set for your entire target architecture or only selected applications. Based on your selection, the platform ranks proposals accordingly and suggests the most appropriate cloud target architecture.
