About Qarnot computing
At Qarnot, we heat homes and offices for free with computers. Qarnot created the first computing heater using CPUs as a heat source. Qarnot provides cloud computing through a disruptive distributed infrastructure where computing power is no longer deployed in concentrated data centers but split throughout the city in the form of Q.rads. By avoiding data center costs related to infrastructure, maintenance, and cooling, Qarnot offers affordable HPC and reduces the carbon footprint of computation by 75%.
Since 2014, more than 100 French households are heated for free with Q.rads, computing remotely for banks (including BNP Paribas and Société Générale), 3D animation studios and research labs. Created in Paris in 2010, Qarnot's team counts 27 people.
Qarnot is recognized as a pioneer in the distributed cloud and Smart Building and won several awards, including Popular Mechanics’ Editors' Choice Award at Las Vegas CES 2016, Cloud Innovation World Cup Award in 2015 and, Crédit Agricole Smart Home Challenge Award in 2016.
