PerfectScale has introduced new capabilities enabling users to visualize, monitor, and mitigate the carbon footprint of Kubernetes clusters operating in AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. 

Through the platform’s handling of cloud resources, enterprises can effectively reduce costs and improve the environmental sustainability of their applications, according to the company. 

The widespread adoption of Kubernetes has led to a surge in demand for cloud computing resources, contributing to environmental concerns. Recognizing the growing importance of sustainability and aligning with tightening carbon emission regulations, Gartner identified sustainable technology as a top trend for 2024. 

“Improving the environmental sustainability of Kubernetes is something the entire team at PerfectScale is passionate about,” said Eli Birger, CTO and co-founder of PerfectScale. “By making Kubernetes optimization a simplified, automated process, we are enabling organizations to make a major impact on carbon emission levels that will make a lasting impact on the world we live in.”

PerfectScale’s Kubernetes Optimization and Management Platform is actively tackling the complexities of managing carbon emissions in Kubernetes environments. The platform offers comprehensive carbon emission metrics and trending analyses at both environment-wide and cluster levels across major cloud providers. 

It also provides automated recommendations and actions to eliminate unnecessary cloud resources within Kubernetes, thereby reducing both costs and carbon footprints.
