Over the past year I’ve spent a fair amount of time getting my head around green software and what role cloud computing plays in that space. There’s a talk that I’m currently presenting at various conferences and events. If you just want the essentials there’s now an article that I wrote with my colleague Seema: Cloud Native Sustainability: Strategies for carbon reduction.

In the article, we explore how an organisation can reduce their carbon footprint by moving to the cloud and to cloud-native architectures. And that’s an important point right there: Shifting workloads from on-premises data centres to the cloud can significantly reduce carbon emissions, but to realise the full potential of carbon reductions that a cloud-based solution can offer you will have to move to a cloud-native architecture.
