Deep Green and Civo announce new partnership to make cloud sustainable 

Deep Green and Civo announce new partnership to make cloud sustainable  Duncan is an award-winning editor with more than 20 years experience in journalism. Having launched his tech journalism career as editor of Arabian Computer News in Dubai, he has since edited an array of tech and digital marketing publications, including Computer Business Review, TechWeekEurope, Figaro Digital, Digit and Marketing Gazette.


Deep Green, the team pioneering carbon-neutral compute, has partnered with Civo, the only pure-play cloud native service provider. The agreement will see Civo become Deep Green’s exclusive cloud partner. 

The new partnership between Civo and Deep Green will give Civo customers the exclusive opportunity to run their cloud workloads on Deep Green’s servers, giving them access to a groundbreaking sustainable cloud solution. Not only will this help companies move towards a sustainable and net-zero future, but it will provide Deep Green with a constant workload to generate zero carbon heat to power its community based projects. 

Data centres currently produce 3% of global emissions. To combat the problem, Deep Green captures 90% of the heat produced by servers and puts it to good use by using it to provide free hot water. Deep Green’s solution dramatically reduces energy bills and environmental costs for organisations that require significant amounts of heat, such as swimming pools, food manufacturers and textile firms amongst many. Using a small-edge data centre, or a ‘digital boiler’, the system immerses computers in mineral oil to capture the generated heat, this 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; from there, they’ll be able to run their cloud workloads on Deep Green’s Exmouth systems. As Deep Green continues to expand, Civo customers will be able to run their workloads at a range of Deep Green data centre sites, with their compute used to generate heat in communities across the UK. 

This partnership is another step from Civo as it commits to a sustainable future. Civo is offering access at a competitive price and has kept its pricing consistent across its regions as it encourages more of its customers to pivot to green solutions. 

Mark Boost, CEO of Civo, said: “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. 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, said: “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.”
