Le programme

  1. Measure - Identifying the right drivers to reduce the environmental impact of the cloud

    1. 1 Where to act - Density, Code, Location - and the related magnitude of possible gains

    2. 2 Establish a transparent, expert measurement mechanism to be credible. Which types of stakeholders to mobilize (carbon experts, APM...). Example at platform.sh with Greenly, Backfire.io

    3. 3

      Group work Based on the example of PHP, compare the carbon footprint of cloud companies to that of countries.

  2. Optimize and Deploy - Understanding and Building a Strategy to Reduce Your Footprint

    1. 1 Theory nugget - The 3 main drivers (Efficiency and Density, optimizing code, Location). How to combine environmental performance and impact.

    2. 2 Deploy: Emissions by provider and by country, and possible gains on a typical architecture. How to take into account the roadmap of hyperscalers (AWS etc.) in your choices. Examples of dormant containers, other levers

    3. 3

      Group work Build your trajectory with possible GHG gains by changing the location of your cloud and energy providers.

    4. 4 Prioritize actions: How to write your roadmap, how to prioritize based on sector/maturity of the company and your current hosting situation

  3. Educate - Implementing the action plan and involving the entire company

    1. 1 How to convince and involve IT in making the right choices. The example of the dilemma between scaling first and then optimizing or scaling while optimizing from the start

    2. 2 Moving from an action plan to a dynamic approach. What are the winning approaches in terms of tracking, organization? How to budget and communicate/sensitize internally

    3. 3

      Group work Build your pitch 'Carbon trajectory 2040 of our IT.'
