Qarnot uses waste heat from computations to heat buildings, and lower the carbon footprint of servers.
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.
Offers from Qarnot computing
computing heater (QH-1)
a computing heater that warms rooms reusing waste-heat from high performance computations
The QH-1 (formerly called Q.rad) is the 1st computing heater embedding microprocessors as a heat source. Connected to the Internet, it brings comfort, security and intelligence into every room: dynamic Wi-Fi, presence detection, air quality monitoring and many other sensors. Most of all, heat is generated by embedded computers working remotely for companies as a distributed data center: you get 100% free and green heat!
Green render farm (Qarnot Render)
Qarnot Render is a render farm designed for CG artists and 3D studios, where renderings heat buildings.
Qarnot computing heats buildings with computations. Qarnot Render is a fully-featured renderfarm supporting many applications (V-Ray, Blender, Renderman, Guerilla...), accessible through a super-friendly web interface, a REST API and/or a Python SDK. A distributed cloud made up of computing heaters and boilers using high-end CPUs to heat offices and residential buildings, Qarnot Render is as eco-friendly as performant. "Cosmos Laundromat", short movie by the Blender foundation and Jury Prize award at SIGGRAPH 2016, was entirely rendered with Qarnot.
