Cloud&Heat is a cloud infrastructure company that is placing servers in German homes.
Why? People want FREE heat and the servers provide plenty. If you’ve ever had the fan on your laptop go totally nuts, you know it makes sense why and how so this innovative company came up with the solution.
*Customers pay to have a Cloud&Heat fire-proof cabinet installed in their homes or offices.
*Cloud&Heat pays for the electricity and Internet service the cabinet needs.
*The owner gets to enjoy free heat and hot water.
>Security is a concern with these setups, because anyone’s data could be in anyone else’s house at a given time, but Cloud&Heat claims that since all of its data is encrypted and only its employees can open the cabinets that everyone’s information is safe. Still, it’s more reassuring to think that your data is stored in a remote server farm than in someone’s house.[SOURCE](http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/11/11/cloud_heat_is_putting_servers_in_homes_and_offices_and_the_heat_from_them.html)
