In the next 7 years, European countries will cut their greenhouse gas emissions by over a half as proposed by the European climate law. As software continues to eat the world, the tech industry has a responsibility to evolve. The efficiency of Kubernetes has been shown to reduce cloud costs and carbon footprints, but do these benefits scale down? Due to its complexity, training times for those adopting Kubernetes have an environmental price tag. For smaller companies or individuals, is Kubernetes the most beneficial solution? Do the long term benefits outweigh the initial costs of the learning curve? How does Kubernetes compare to its alternatives from a sustainability perspective? What is its environmental price tag and how can developers minimize their impact? We will be exploring when the Kubernetes adoption journey becomes environmentally productive and visualizing its energy usage scaling from individual contributors to enterprises.
