Adopting Azure serverless architectures to help reduce CO2 emissions – Part 2 (Extending to the Edge)
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 Azure.com uses Serverless Functions for Consumption-based utilization and reduced always-on electric footprint
In June 2020, we shared how Azure.com 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.
