Deep Green has announced a partnership with Civo to offer customers a sustainable cloud solution.

The partnership will see Civo become Deep Green’s exclusive cloud partner, offering Civo customers a platform to run cloud workloads on Deep Green’s servers.

As well as providing companies with a sustainable cloud solution, the agreement will provide Deep Green with a constant workload to generate zero carbon heat to power its community-based projects. 

Deep Green captures 90% of the heat produced by its servers, using it to provide free hot water. It announced earlier this year that it was using waste heat produced by a small, on-site edge data centre to provide free heat to a public swimming pool.

According to Deep Green, the system immerses computers in mineral oil to capture the generated heat, which is then passed through a heat exchanger to heat the water. 

Users will be given the option to select the Deep Green region from Civo’s range of regions and run their cloud workloads on Deep Green’s Exmouth systems.

“At Civo, we’re firm believers that cloud shouldn’t cost the earth. That’s why we’re focused on making these solutions accessible to our customers,” Mark Boost, CEO of Civo, said. “We all have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint, and this is just one way we’re looking to reduce our emissions and move towards a climate positive future. We’re excited to step into this role as an exclusive partner and help take Deep Green to the next level to build a fairer and more sustainable future for cloud.”

Mark Bjornsgaard, Founder of Deep Green added, “Energy is expensive, and precious. So many organisations and communities struggle to afford the heat they need to exist. Yet so much energy, so much heat, is wasted everyday by data centres. That’s what Deep Green is fixing, and in the process dramatically reducing overall carbon emissions. We’re excited to have Civo’s customers join us on the journey. For too long, compute infrastructure has contributed to the problem of climate change. Now it can be part of the solution.”
