Sustainable Software Engineering (SSE) and the role and responsibilities of a Sustainable Software Engineer

Sustainable Software Engineering is a new discipline that brings together climatology, software and hardware technology and data center designs. In this post I will clarify these principles, describing the possible role of the Sustainable Software Engineer, with consequent responsibilities and skills necessary to interpret it at the best.

Adopting Azure serverless architectures to help reduce CO2 emissions – Part 2 (Extending to the Edge)

  In the previous part of the serverless architecture post for the Contoso Claim processing application, we built two components. In this iteration, we will make the architecture more sustainable by using Edge computing. Edge computing is a paradigm that brings the compute, storage, and intelligence right down to the ...

How uses Serverless Functions for Consumption-based utilization and reduced always-on electric footprint

In June 2020, we shared how achieves a global scale and how Sustainable Software Engineering principles were at the center. In this post we discuss how serverless architecture helped us create more sustainable apps and saved us 10x in azure spend for our data pipeline middleware. By shifting our workloads from always-on to on-demand...

Adopting Azure serverless architectures to help reduce CO2 emissions – Part 1

The article explains how serverless architectures can be used to enable sustainable software engineering principles. It takes a sample claim processing system and provides a thought process on how to use Azure serverless components like functions and Event grid to build out a reference architecture and showcase key design patterns.
