Green House says purchasing Denver-based Ajubeo adds support and customers in the Rocky Mountain region. Green House is based 90 miles north in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
“We are continuing to execute on our aggressive growth strategy through strategic acquisition as well as new logo growth,” said Shawn Mills, Green House Data CEO and president. “We’re now even better positioned to serve Denver and wider Front Range companies with high-touch, customer-focused cloud solutions while adding another edge location option for our existing customers.”
The company says it has expanded across the U.S. since its founding in 2007. Green House Data has more than 100,000 square feet of data center white space in 11 buildings. The company began its expansion on the West Coast and recently built its presence in the New York area. Its acquisition of Cirracore, an Atlanta-based infrastructure company, gave it a presence in the Southeast.
Wendy Fox, Green House Data vice president of marketing, tells Channel Partners that the company is focusing on providing a private cloud experience in Denver as it buys Ajubeo.
“For those partners who are looking for access to the robust business community that exists in Denver and throughout the Front Range as a region, it gives them a local option,” Fox said. “And also for those partners who already have a practice in Denver, it gives them an option to be closer to their customers.”
Ajubeo was founded in 2011 and offers private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructure. It has several tiers in its cloud partner program and also offers a VAR cloud partner program.
Green House Data provides managed services and hybrid IT in addition to colocation and cloud hosting. It is a member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s green power program. Green House recently announced a new infrastructure methodology that helps customers plan for deployments.
“Legacy Ajubeo clients can expect improved customer experience, increased product variety, and more options for geographic resiliency and targeted service delivery,” said Cortney Thompson, Green House Data’s chief information officer.
