Green House Data has announced the expansion of its gBlock cloud, a VMware vCloud-powered offering, into Newark, NJ. Partnering with DuPont Fabros Technology and Net2EZ, the world’s greenest cloud now also has a home on the East Coast. The Newark gBlock cloud will provide a cornerstone for nationwide access to production cloud environments and cloud disaster recovery. Green House Data brings the same customer service standards, competitive pricing, and sustainability efforts to Newark as in the company’s other locations in Cheyenne, Wyoming and Portland, Oregon.
“The Green House Data cloud now blankets the entire nation,” said Shawn Mills, president, Green House Data. “We are proud to give our customers a geographically diverse cloud that is highly available, load balanced across locations, and provides additional failover in the case of an unforeseen event.”
The move grows the Green House Data cloud to cover the United States from coast to coast, ensuring excellent access in North America and Europe, and providing cloud infrastructure as a service options to those organizations who must have low latency, high performance access to their applications at all times.
“Because we are able to provide multiple, nationwide access points, our customers are able to reach their customers, faster, no matter where they are in North America or the Eurozone,” said Mills.
