Defab develops smart building solutions via innovative technology that converts IT energy into hot water. Through this new concept, they also provide highly secured computing services for any company in need of IT infrastructure.
Companies buy computing time from Defab’s distribution platform. The buildings hosting the computing data next to their water-heater benefit from hot water completely free of charge.
Defab recycles the heat of integrated computer equipment, whilst reducing the ecological footprint allowing the consumer to benefit from reduced energy cost. The sale of cloud computing relies on three main markets:
– Simulation, R&D, computations of large industrial groups (Aeronautics, Car manufacturing, Oil&Gaz, Media, Pharmaceutics)
– Broadcasting and Media
According to an independent study (INDICTA-March 2015), the computing market in France is estimated about 320M€, with an annual growth of 8%. Besides, 2 million water-heaters are sold in France every year, which makes it an easily accessible market with an industrial partnership.
