CHEYENNE, Wyoming—(3/24/09) – Green House Data’s wind powered facility was selected by the National Outdoor Leadership School to provide energy efficient outsourced data center services to the institution.
Green House Data was chosen because it invests in energy efficiency technologies while absorbing the premium price of being entirely wind powered. The company’s green data center offers market competitive, if not the lowest cost price point on services, providing customers an immediate return on their green investment and ‘Smashes the Green Stereotype’.
“A data center is chosen for many reasons – reliability, security, redundancy, staff capabilities, price, and in our case, environmental impact. We were fortunate to find all of these in Green House Data,” said Paul Cornia, Director of Information Systems at the National Outdoor Leadership School.
Increasing pressure on data centers to operate in a more environmentally responsible fashion led Green House Data to meet the challenge head on. The company is committed to the purchase or on-site production of 100 percent of its power though renewable wind energy. In addition, the company continually invests in the latest energy efficient power and cooling technologies to drive costs down and pass savings onto its customers.
“From server virtualization to air-conditioner economizers, Green House Data has made a commitment to its customers like NOLS that it will not charge a premium price for services that should be included in every data center’s operation,” said Shawn Mills, President of Green House Data. “We are extremely pleased to see leaders in corporate America adopting this same philosophy.”
