In Germany, these servers wants to keep every home warm

Most places around the world are getting ready to bring out the blankets and coats, in preparation for the cold, cold season ahead. Knowing this, a company called Cloud & Heat has come up with a very interesting idea, one that’s beneficial to both it and the parties interested in giving it a try. In exchange for heat, the Germany-based firm is offering to put a cabinet filled with servers in people’s homes. As Slate points out, Cloud & Heat isn’t the only company working on heat-for-server-housing program, but others aren’t as advanced in the implementation stages. Unfortunately, the service isn’t free for home owners, since there is a one-time (undisclosed) installation fee. The good news: Cloud & Heat takes care of the electricity and internet bills, so the deal could turn out to be more than decent.
