We work with companies and data centres to reduce the carbon footprint of their offline batch cloud compute.

Lower carbon compute

Each heata unit uses 56% less electricity and saves 1 tonne of carbon per year vs a typical data centre plus hot water heating [1]. This is because we avoid an air conditioning energy cost, and offset a domestic hot water heating cost. So not only is your compute having a positive climate impact, but it's also having a positive social impact too.

You can find out more about how it works below.


Cloud native compute

We support Kubernetes; deploy and manage your heata workloads online with Rancher, kubectl and within your existing platform as part of a hybrid cloud set-up. If you have specific requirements, let us know.

Security

We're building the heata network on SUSE's secure edge platform which has been designed to provide enterprise grade security in physically exposed public infrastructure. Our software partner is Securelinx, a SUSE platinum partner with over twenty years' experience ensuring secure enterprise grade outcomes for businesses using Open Source solutions.

Meet the heata unit

A powerful compute server that attaches to domestic hot water cylinders, the heat generated by the processing is transferred into the cylinder using a patented thermal transfer mechanism.

Try out the heata network

If sustainability is important to your business, the heata network could help you reduce the climate impact of your batch compute workloads, as well as provide free hot water to households that are struggling to pay their fuel bills.

The heata network can run any offline batch compute but not 'real-time' services like websites and apps. If you have a suitable workload, we'd love to hear from you. Here are some examples of the types of work we can undertake:

  • Computation finance and risk analysis

  • Higher education research and supercomputing

  • Medical research and data processing

  • Climate modelling

I'd like to run a test workload
