Power Consumption

Estimated power consumed by an instance according to its load level (idle, 10% load, 50% load, 100% load). This number doesn’t include the PUE and only reflects the server consumption.

Scope 2

Carbon emissions related to running the instance, including the datacenter PUE

Scope 3

Carbon emissions related to manufacturing the underlying hardware
