Green IT at Siggraph

French computing company Qarnot Computing is presenting its HPC cloud service at the Siggraph in Anaheim, California, that is kicking off today. Qarnot developed a green IT solution that makes it possible to heat homes and offices with firms’ computation. Every machine creates heat as a waste”, says Paul Benoit, CEO at Quarnot. “We have decided to use the energy generated by the IT. "



Qarnot’s philosophy is to producce  heat in homes and offices, directly where it is useful. Contrary to data centres, Qarnot’s decentralized and flexible infrastucture is located close to the users, thereby reducing latency. The system will be presented at booth 633 in the Exhibition Hall at Siggraph.


Siggraph is the world’s largest, most influential annual event in computer graphics and interactive techniques: Five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings, and hands-on interactivity featuring the community’s latest technical achievements, and three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry’s current hardware, software, and services.
