Dynatrace delivers real-time insights into the carbon footprint of hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems

Software intelligence specialist Dynatrace has launched a Carbon Impact app to deliver real-time insights into the carbon footprint of an organization’s Dynatrace-monitored hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystem – offering precise answers on reducing environmental impact.

The app was developed using the Dynatrace AppEngine, a new Dynatrace platform technology that empowers teams to deliver data-driven apps for business, development, security and operations use cases.

While cloud providers share carbon footprint data, this only covers individual SaaS services rather than complete hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems.

Additionally, these service-specific insights can lack the details teams need to drive action – for example, which hosts, processes or applications are driving consumption.

These deficiencies make reporting and compliance challenging and limit organizations’ ability to understand where and how to optimize their ecosystems to ensure minimal environmental impact.

Dynatrace Carbon Impact addresses these challenges by calculating, tracking and reporting the carbon footprint of Dynatrace-monitored hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems.

The Dynatrace platform leverages Carbon Impact and its Smartscape topology and dependency mapping to provide process and app-level details for precise optimization insights.

With guidance from the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance (SDIA) Dynatrace developed the Carbon Impact app to align key consumption metrics with their contribution to a carbon footprint.

Daan Terpstra, CEO, SDIA, said: “Understanding the environmental impact of digital products and services is vital to taking meaningful steps to reduce it. Through its precise insights and broad context, Dynatrace Carbon Impact will allow organizations to better assess and optimize the environmental footprint of their hybrid and multi-cloud ecosystems. We are excited to partner with Dynatrace as we strive for a world with sustainable digital infrastructure.”

Bernd Greifeneder, Founder and CTO, Dynatrace, said: “Understanding and minimizing environmental impact is a critical component of organizations’ strategies as they work to meet the needs and expectations of their customers, employees, investors and the communities in which they operate. With Dynatrace Carbon Impact, our customers will be empowered with an easy-to-use solution to understand and optimize the carbon footprint of their cloud ecosystems. By making this available to all Dynatrace SaaS customers we believe we can improve our collective environmental impact.”
