Green Computing

The heat generated by all the data centers in the world doubles every 5 years but could already heat half of Europe’s households. The need for more computing power and the Internet of Things (IoT) will force organizations to aggregate data in multiple distributed mini data centers. Toward 2020, the industry asks for more energy efficient. Skyrocketing needs in computing power call for drastically more energy efficient alternative models to data centers.

Qarnot designed and operates the Q.rad, the first computing heater using embedded microprocessors as heat source. Totally silent, it gets computing instructions through the Internet. The heat produced by computing provides then free and efficient heating for residential, office and public buildings. Qarnot offers a cloud computing service through a fully distributed infrastructure where computing power is deployed no longer in concentrated data centers, but split throughout the city in the form of Q.rads.
