Recommendation : 3. Adapt the use of technical equipment to needs
Are unused cores disabled ?
Are under and overload periods anticipated?
Hosted services do not always have the same performance needs and are subject to strong variations in load, during the day, week, month or year. The sizing are calibrated to accept the maximum loads which may be over limited time ranges. Outside of these periods, the need for power is reduced and the activity of the systems must be able to be reduced in the same proportions so as not to monopolize energy unnecessarily.

Formalized = 100 ; Planned = 75 ; Identified = 50 ; Ignored = 0 / 100
11 other criteria related to the recommendation: Adapt the use of technical equipment to needs
Is the size of the physical park in line with the number of virtual machines to be run ?
Are servers / routers turned off when not in use ?
Is the allocated memory based on actual use ?
Is the number of CPU cores allocated based on actual use ?
Is the technical choice (shared, dedicated, clustered) optimised between the actual need and energy efficiency ?
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 ?
Is provisioning / deprovisionning dynamic depending on the load ?
Do storage solutions reduce the number of components (for example: high density SSD media) ?
