U.S. cloud hosting and colocation services provider, Green House Data, a company with multiple data centers across the United States, has announced the launch of a fully managed Microsoft Azure cloud services offering. The new managed solution will assist in the design, migration, and ongoing operation of hybrid cloud environments built on the Azure platform.
By adding Azure management, Green House Data can now help clients design, deploy, and operate client infrastructure in Microsoft Azure, while also monitoring and maintaining those environments for security and availability.
“Organizations need to deploy and run workloads in the way that makes the most sense for their business, and that often means the use of public cloud resources,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “We’ve long helped our clients manage hybrid infrastructure and applications, and now we’ve extended this service to Azure’s public IaaS. Customers can benefit from the same experienced, certified, and high-value creative solutions and superior support, across a broader array of platforms.”
In this offering, managed Microsoft Azure public cloud services from Green House Data begin with SpotLITE, a “comprehensive” discovery process that uses “deep” examination and benchmarking of IT environments to create a roadmap for better application service delivery, connectivity, resilient infrastructure, and data storage.
“Offering managed Azure is about the long-term vision for the enterprise,” said Cortney Thompson, CIO of Green House Data. “We work with clients to uncover the ideal platform for their business, and we provide those platforms. Also, the entire platform has end-to-end security, monitoring, and proactive maintenance protocols.”
“Over the last decade, we’ve helped many of our customers’ transition away from day-to-day management of their IT environments to leveraging our services,” said Shawn Mills. “We love seeing what teams can accomplish when we are able to help them extend their departments. The addition of managed Azure will further this effort, and we look forward to seeing innovation from our current and future customers with the addition of Azure.”
Green House Data has held a data center competency through the Microsoft Partner Program since 2012 and is CSP for both Office 365 and SharePoint.
