Eric Feliksik, Co-Founder / COO at Nerdalize, presents at the Internet of Things Event: “Heat your home with computer power: a cloud of highly distributed micro data centers”.
Nerdalize is a Dutch start-up that provides affordable computing power with an innovative approach. We heat living rooms with CPUs, as high-performance computer hardware is fit into a beautiful design radiator. While home owners heat for free, a massive distributed compute infrastructure becomes available. This talk will give an overview of the dynamics of the cloud market and the energy industry, and why it makes sense to combine the two. We discuss how this allows us to compete in the cloud market, and how we aim to change the environmental impact of the compute industry.
“Free heating for everyone and Compute as an affordable, sustainable commodity“
