French homes are the newest place to house Cloud Computing

If you live in France and you meet the technical requirements, ViFiB – a French hosting company – wants space in your home for a form of cloud computing. ViFiB thinks spreading servers across the country rather than in a data centre – which has escalating energy and cooling costs – makes much more sense. By placing its servers in houses and offices equipped with broadband Internet access, the company is creating a new hosting option somewhere between cloud computing and SETI@home, a distributed computing project.

 

ViFiB will rent out a machine with 1GB of RAM and 10GB of solid-state disk storage space, running on one core of an 8-core Intel i7 860 processor, for around €8 per month,. ViFiB wants residents willing to plug two high-end PCs into their Internet connection and electricity supply. In return, ViFiB will pay up to 30 Euros per month to subsidize the cost of the fibre-to-the-home Internet connection necessary for fast access, the news report said.
