Recommendation : 3. Adapt the use of technical equipment to needs
Is the technical choice (shared, dedicated, clustered) optimised between the actual need and energy efficiency ?
Which metric drives the choice: technical, security, finance, scalability, physical footprint?
Different solutions offered by hosting providers generate very different physical equipment allocations and therefore a different environmental footprint. The major point of analysis is the number of servers, the power consumed by the servers, the storage volumes and the power consumed by them. Using powerful servers or storage for a need that does not require their full capacity increases environmental impact.
71. The calculations and tasks are distributed over different dedicated servers depending on the nature of their tasks (data, emails, videos, etc.)
Rule for assessing the level of compliance of the criterion

Is the allocated memory based on actual use ?
Is the number of CPU cores allocated based on actual use ?
Are unused cores disabled ?
Is the backup system incremental (disk optimization) ?
Is the use of containers over virtual machines preferred ?
Are Open Source solutions implemented when available ?
Is high availability designed in a modular fashion ?
