How do you use the heat generated by servers in cloud for social good? In 2023, Civo & DEEP GREEN pioneered a project in Devon, transforming server heat into community benefits. Imagine miniaturising the data centre, locating it in a secured plant room of a swimming pool & then running a cloud stack services solution on it? Then transform the way that mini data centre is cooled, recapturing & redeploying 96% of the energy it uses, offering end-users green cloud computing, & at the same time providing cost-saving free heat to hosts. We'll explore the technical synergy between DEEP GREEN's cooling technology & Civo's cloud stack. The integration not only reduced energy waste significantly but also posed unique operational challenges. Attendees will learn about server modifications for optimal cooling, the management & insights into deploying eco-friendly cloud solution. This case study is a beacon of socially responsible technology, offering lessons in sustainability & climate response.
