Cloud Carbon Footprint with Steren Giannini
Compute resources continue to trend towards being cheaper, easier to use, and faster. Despite these positives, more compute demands more energy and therefore an increasing carbon footprint. With many companies committing to controlling their net carbon emissions, tools are required for engineers to not only measure their cloud infrastructure, but to make informed choices about how to set up the infrastructure.
Steren Giannini is a senior product manager. He works on Google Cloud Carbon Footprint. In this interview, we discuss how Google Cloud collects and exposes this data to users and how those users are responding in their infrastructure approaches.
