We like to show people we go to the nth degree to make sure our clients' data is secure.” The clients that use Green House Data’s cloud hosting services include New Belgium Brewing Company, the National Outdoor Leadership School, and now, the state of Wyoming.

One company is doing just that for its customers. This month, Green House Data completed a $35 million expansion that gave the state of Wyoming a new place to house its data. Read full article...
