VMware Cloud Well-Architected Framework : Sustainability Practices for Oracle Cloud VMware Solution
Oracle VMware Cloud Solution (OCVS) can help organizations quickly adopt environmental sustainability and carbon reduction best practices in their operations.
By moving workloads to VMware Cloud, organizations can reduce the net environmental impact of data centers without making a dedicated investment for sustainability and carbon reduction. OCVS takes on this responsibility by continuously working to make data centers more energy efficient. VMware implements sustainable practices to develop and support the VMware Software-Defined Data Center, such as using 100% renewable energy and supporting low-carbon sustainable development projects. Oracle is also committed to sustainability in the cloud as they continue their path to powering their operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025. Oracle is continuously making their data centers more energy-efficient with initiatives such as developing efficient water-use strategy and accelerating sustainability research and innovation.
Not only are the data centers supporting OCVS energy efficient, but they also provide flexibility in VMware Cloud infrastructure. Organizations can scale their OCVS environment up and down as necessary to meet the fluctuating workload demands and availability requirements. By utilizing OCVS infrastructure, organizations are supporting environmental sustainability and carbon reduction by eliminating waste of resources in data centers.
In addition to eliminating actual physical resources waste, organizations can further reduce waste by monitoring deployed services and right-sizing workloads in their OCVS SDDC. By using OCVS, organizations no longer need to spend time on taking care of the physical or logical infrastructure of their data centers. Instead, organizations can focus on improving their workloads and making them more energy efficient.
Oracle VMware Cloud Solution enables organizations to accelerate not just their cloud migration and adoption, but also their contribution to environmental sustainability and carbon reduction in their operations.
