Stimulus: The software system is in operation, serving a high number of concurrent users in a data center powered by non-renewable energy sources.
Environment: High demand for data processing and computational resources, typical of a large-scale application.
Response: The system should prioritize energy efficiency and carbon reduction in its operations. It should be designed to:
- optimize energy consumption, aiming to reduce overall energy usage by 25% compared to the previous year’s energy consumption.
- incorporate renewable energy sources for its data center operations, striving to achieve at least 50% of renewable energy usage within the next two years.
- achieve at least 50% of renewable energy usage within the next two years. This goal promotes a gradual shift towards more sustainable energy practices.
