The Intercloud: The Cloud Of Clouds
CIOs of large corporations are adopting a multi-cloud strategy- since one cloud does not fit all. Since they have a large International user base with a complex and large application landscape they need multiple public as well as local clouds to accommodate these needs. Greenclouds was founded 5 years ago with the objective to reduce the enormous amount of excess IT capacity.
Greenclouds definition of ‘Excess Capacity’ (Capacity which can be claimed back at any point in time) led to the core of Greenclouds technical roadmap;interoperability and the realization of what we call; The Intercloud. Founded in 2009, Greenclouds is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and its technology is widely and internationally recognized and has received many awards and nominations. The team is led by Peter Zonneveld, who is the Co-Founder and CEO.
Greenclouds aggregates cloud resources, regardless of the underlying technology, infrastructure and location and integrates this into a network of interoperable clouds. Greenclouds aggregates resources from public –and local clouds and even private clouds and make them work as one cloud.
As a consequence, Greenclouds is able to fulfill all possible use cases and locations. All available –and required cloud capabilities in this network are transformed into qualified resources. Greenclouds has realized an abstraction layer, which is based on a standard open cloud taxonomy, effecting that these ‘’cloud-commodities’’ are logical consolidated in one cloud. With the integrated cloud services platform, Enterprise IT is able to define unique cloud based services and deploy this across these clouds. The most common cloud services building blocks are pre-defined in an open cloud catalogue. These are what we call the ‘’cloud products’’ for IaaS, Workspaces, Continuity, etc.
Their customers are able to realize unique cloud based services for their end users. “Through our cloud technology, customers are able to configure and build specific cloud services out of building blocks in our open cloud catalogue”, says Peter.
Greenclouds intelligently assembles the required cloud capabilities from multiple clouds based on the requirements as defined in the service. These services are making use of their multi-tenant and generic network of interoperable clouds, The Intercloud.
Many multinational and listed companies are making use of these intercloud services for multiple use cases such as mail environments (Microsoft exchange), virtual desktops (vmware and citrix), disaster recovery, big data analytics. With the Greenclouds network of interoperable clouds, their customers are able to define unique cloud services themselves by mixing-and-matching cloud capabilities from multiple and different cloud providers without any lock-in.
