Sustainability at Mirantis

According to the non-profit Shift Project, cloud computing accounts for between 2.7 and 3.7% of global CO2 emissions—more than commercial aviation. It’s essential for organizations to implement controls on cloud-driven energy consumption—and many face rising pressure to do so from investors and regulators alike.

It’s not just infrastructure that drives up emissions. A recent study on container usage shows that almost 70% of CPU resources requested by containers are never used, contributing to an estimated $10 million in cumulative overprovisioning—and energy waste.

A comprehensive approach to sustainable cloud usage means organizations need both a careful approach to infrastructure and strategies to optimize their applications.

Powering greener clouds

Across public, private, and hybrid/multi-cloud, cloud native technologies provide resource-aware systems to maximize efficiency and minimize consumption—as well as the expertise to help avoid wasteful misconfigurations.

Mirantis empowers organizations to adopt principles of green software engineering, including:

Building energy-efficient applications

Leveraging resource-awareness for applications

Creating highly observable environments

Mirantis is ISO 14001 (Environmental management systems) certified, and we’ve worked closely to help customers such as Inmarsat create greener satellite networks and to support Société Générale’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
