A CDE Definition
An idea proposed by Microsoft Research that would place servers in the basements of homes, apartments and offices to help heat the buildings during the winter. With a large-scale, distributed deployment of data furnaces (DFs), the machines can be used as local caches, thereby removing some burden from the large, national datacenters. They can also be used to distribute massive computational processing that is required by various industries and sciences.
