“GreenQloud’s mission is to promote and sell easy to use, competitively priced, carbon neutral, cloud computing services to SMBs, SaaS providers, PaaS providers, enterprises, the public sector and high performance computing users,” said Eirikur Hrafnsson, co-founder and CEO of GreenQloud. “We will also let our customers see their live energy metrics and carbon savings so they can report these results as part of their own sustainability programmes.”
“The IT industry is responsible for over 2% of global green house emissions,” added Hrafnsson, “So GreenQloud’s primary focus is on tackling that problem by delivering public cloud services that run exclusively on renewable energy sources.” GreenQloud also sees an opportunity to provide less expensive and deeper integration high performance computing (HPC) services to the academic and scientific communities and are working with university networks to deliver on that promise.
“GreenQloud is relying on the resiliency, scalability and growth security Verne Global brings to the table and will take advantage of our stability to grow their international presence quickly,” said Jeff Monroe, CEO of Verne Global. “Companies looking to benefit from Iceland’s unique power situation – dual sourced renewable power, long-term price visibility and a cool climate that eliminates the need for chillers – will find that Verne Global is uniquely qualified to meet their data centre needs.”
