Cost and energy savings powered by AWS Graviton

Our cost and energy saving consultancy offering has been developed for enterprises with existing or planned EC2-based AWS cloud services that want to reduce their operating costs, energy consumption and environmental footprint.

As the world faces the challenges of climate change and environmental sustainability, reducing energy consumption and minimizing carbon footprint have become key priorities for our clients. Capgemini is strongly committed to the United Nations goals and the associated 17 Sustainable Development Goals. As part of the twelfth goal, “Responsible Consumption and Production,” Capgemini is working closely with AWS on the sustainability pillars of the AWS Well-Architectured Framework., AWS has developed a new family of ARM-based processors designed for high performance and lower energy consumption. Switching to AWS Graviton instances can reduce costs by up to 20% and improve performance by 20%, while reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint by 60%.

From strategy to migration and application modernization, Capgemini transforms your business and optimizes your AWS cloud investment.

Our industrialized and robust methodology for migrating workloads to the cloud ensures a short time-to-value. We ensure that the cloud migration pattern is aligned with your cloud ambitions and enables high-quality and cost-effective migration.

This allows us to evaluate the feasibility and benefits of transferring existing EC2 workloads to AWS Graviton-based instances: and includesConducting a comprehensive inventory of all EC2 instances, including their types, utilization patterns, and performance requirements
  • Categorization of workloads based on their suitability for migration to AWS Graviton instances: some workloads may be better candidates than others due to their resource requirements and compatibility
  • Analyzing the cost implications of migrating to AWS Graviton.
  • Choosing the appropriate AWS Graviton instances based on the workload profiles identified in the assessment.
  • Development of a detailed migration plan that outlines the sequence of migration, potential rollbacks, and contingency measures in case of unexpected issues.
  • Smooth migration of the applications to AWS Graviton.

Migrating software to AWS Graviton can be a complex process, but with careful planning and execution, you can unlock the cost and performance benefits that these instances offer ensuring that:

  • the software application itself is compatible with the ARM-based architecture,
  • ARM-compatible versions are available for all third-party libraries and dependencies used by the application; and
  • the operating system required by the application is supported by AWS Graviton (e.g., Linux distribution).
