A sustainable alternative to on-premises systems

Salesforce’s cloud computing model has a much smaller environmental footprint than traditional IT hardware and software. By sharing computing resources among a large number of customers–over 100,000 in our case–you gain enormous economies of scale, especially when it comes to carbon and energy consumption.

95% more efficient than on premises

The environmental savings in the cloud are significant. On average, our cloud solutions emits 95% less carbon compared to on-premises applications.


How do we do it? One word: multitenancy.

Salesforce’s multitenant architecture is essentially a shared utility, so we can optimise computing resources across all our customers. While a traditional single-tenant application requires a dedicated set of resources to fulfill the needs of just one department or organisation or company, a multitenant application uses the same amount of resources to satisfy the needs of multiple “tenants.” The result: incredible savings.
