MADRID, 14 Oct. (Portaltic/EP) –
Microsoft has announced a new tool, Emissions Impact Dashboard, designed so that organizations can assess the carbon emissions associated with their use of technological infrastructure and know what the reduction would be with the use of cloud services.
Microsoft Emissions Impact Dashboard is a tool that helps companies understand, track, analyze data and generate reports with the aim of reducing carbon emissions associated with the use of technology.
This dashboard seeks to help clients to address your own environmental impact “Thanks to the advantages that Microsoft Azure offers over ‘on-premises’ solutions.” The company points out that it can be achieved an improvement of up to 93 percent in energy efficiency and up to 98 percent in terms of carbon emissions.
Emissions Impact Dashboard, the evolutionary Sustainability Calculator released by Microsoft in January 2020, provides customers with transparency on greenhouse gas emissions associated with using Microsoft cloud services, facilitating better understanding the causes of changes in emissions.
Businesses can measure the impact of using the Microsoft cloud on their environmental footprint, and can break down emissions by month, service and Data Center Cloud Region.
The tool also allows customers to perform a estimate of the emissions that the loads they have deployed in Azure would suppose if they were ‘on-premises’, thus putting in value the savings in emissions that they have achieved due to having migrated the workloads to the Microsoft cloud.
New data protection options enable dashboard administrators to control access to information within their organization, as Microsoft highlighted in a statement.
On the other hand, on October 27, the company will announce at the event ‘What’s Next for Sustainability’ how ‘Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability’ will help organizations record, report and reduce their environmental footprint.
