About Greenclouds.

Greenclouds was founded in 2009 as a ‘spin-out’ from Hewlett Packard and Capgemini, with the objective to reduce the enormous amount of excess IT capacity, which is sitting in datacenters across the globe. At the end of 2012, the New York Times in conjunction with McKinsey & Co, published a research with the title; Power, Pollution and the Internet. The conclusion of that research learned that utilization of IT datacenters ran from 7 -12 percent. The related Co2 emissions of this unused capacity are similar than those of the global airline industry [roughly 2% of the World’s Co2 emissions].

Greenclouds started to aggregate excess IT capacity, regardless of the underlying technology, infrastructure and location and integrated this into a cloud. Making this cloud available to enterprise customers and IT service providers resulted in a higher (energy) efficiency and a triple-win solution. 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 now call; the Intercloud.
