The way everyday business-operations are conducted has changed radically over the years. Today, every enterprise organization requires an IT platform. However, there are always minor complications that hinder the workflow and may delay returns. Sometimes, you simply just want the IT to work, rather than complicating the operations. Green House Data understands this. With its automation, Green House Data is here to simplify your IT operations.
Founded in 2007, the company will always be with you on your every step of the IT journey. Back then, it all started with a simple mission- to deliver â€œthe high-availability and raw power, virtual infrastructure, and connectivityÂ needed for critical business infrastructure while remaining a transparent, responsibly run company.â€ With Green House Data, you are enabled with cloud platforms, teams with managed services, automations, and advisory consulting. The motto is simple- â€˜Built Right. Just for you.â€™ The vision explains you can â€œexperience IT servicesÂ from a provider focused on support, community, and sustainability.â€ And thatâ€™s Green House Data for you.
Founding year: 2007
Headquarters: Cheyenne, Wyoming, United States
Motto: Built right. Just for you.
Itâ€™s been more than a decade since the company was established. But the journey has always been an evolving one. As the companyâ€™s clients evolved, so did Green House Data. More locations and services were added that has ultimately created a platform of agnostic managed services. Green House Data today is popularly known as a solutions provider who â€œdelivers hybrid solutions to enterprises who need secure IT environments and efficient management of their critical applications and business data.â€
In this growing journey, Green House Data merged with Infront Consulting Group last year. The merger boomed the growth curve as a deep bench of Microsoft experts joined in to create a complete enterprise advisory service suiteÂ for DevOps enablement, Azure and desktop automation, and IT modernization. With its innovative thinking and breakthrough solutions, Infront is a company thatâ€™s already been recognized as a Microsoft Partner of the Year seven times already.
It is indeed a proud note for Green House Data. After all, the company has some of the best MVPs, consultants, engineers, and architects. Here, everyone is focused on ensuring the IT runs smoothly. â€œWe take our 100% uptime SLA seriously, andÂ constantly monitor all of our sites,â€ guarantees Green House Data.
Deep-rooted commitmentsÂ Â
At Green House Data, everyone focuses on three strong commitments on which the day-to-day business activities are conducted. They are:Â
Commitment to customers
Letâ€™s go back to the companyâ€™s motto: â€˜Built right. Just for you.â€™ When Green House Data says this, it extends to more than just the custom infrastructure or software development. Here, if something doesnâ€™t benefit the customer, you can forget it. It is a strong mantra that everyone here follows. For customers specifically, Green House Data has created a 15-Minute Hear from a Human SLA. This has ensured that if ever there is a problem, the customers are never left waiting.Â
Commitment to performance
No matter what, the daily operations have to be on track. Itâ€™s clear that â€˜slow is the new down.â€™ And this is something Green House Data clearly understands. It doesnâ€™t matter what solution the client wants- whether itâ€™s a traditional colocation, IaaS, a hybrid or even a SaaS solution; Green House Data starts off in the IT infrastructure and understands the impact of lagging systems, latency, and downtime.
Commitment to responsible business
Itâ€™s important to give back to the community and society- Green House Data understands this. This is why 5% of the companyâ€™s compute space and employee time is dedicated to non-profits. Moreover, everyone in the firm is encouraged to participate in non-profit activities- including everyone from top executives in the firm to the newest employee. Also, back in 2014, the firm became a B-Corp. This has created a better accountability for the company towards shareholders, staff, and also the environment and the community. And of course, thereâ€™s also Green House Dataâ€™s dedication toÂ energy-efficiency and green power, too.
â€œAvid has a lot of specific requirements around individual apps. Green House Data learnt the â€˜snowflakesâ€™ that make the business work and delivered the deployment on time and on budget.â€
â€œEvery time I talk to one of our cloud members at Green House Data, I feel like I learn something new about Azure.â€
