Execute code in sustainable DCs:
Green Compute can be enabled for any Cron triggered Workers. The concept is simple: when turned on, we’ll take your compute workload and run it exclusively on parts of our edge network located in facilities powered by renewable energy. Even though all of Cloudflare’s edge network is powered by renewable energy already, some of our data centers are located in third-party facilities that are not 100% powered by renewable energy. Green Compute takes our commitment to sustainability one step further by ensuring that not only our network equipment but also the building facility as a whole are powered by renewable energy. There are absolutely no code changes needed.Note, this allows you to ensure that your code is executed *only* using renewable energy sources, not just offsetting!
“The irony: the more advanced a control system is, the more crucial may be the contribution of the human operator. [….] The more we depend on technology and push it to its limits, the more we need highly-skilled, well-trained, well-practised people to make systems resilient, acting as the last line of defence against the failures that will inevitably occur.” (via Abeba Birhane)
“Biofuels have consistently been marketed as a ‘green’ alternative to fossil fuels, which hides their sky high emissions, human rights abuses & ecological impact.”
