Boden, Sweden, August 11, 2020 – Hydro66, the green cloud infrastructure company successfully launched the worlds’ lowest carbon footprint cloud today in a partnership with CloudSigma and HPE.
David Rowe CEO says “ The launch of H66cloud is a milestone and a new chapter for the company as we extend our capabilities by providing a complete end to end cloud infrastructure for our customers, partners and sales pipeline.”
H66cloud is built with a green approach from the ground up all the way from the power source through to the data center design and including the cloud platform itself. H66cloud aims to help customers make significant savings with a number of innovative features including true pay per use and application portability.
Robert Jenkins, CEO CloudSigma states, “We are very pleased to welcome Hydro66 to our cloud-as-a-service partner program. Hydro66’s combination of unparalleled environmental credentials and deep experience in building compelling customer solutions is the perfect fit for us. Together we are able to offer a fully integrated service portfolio that includes a wide range of both PaaS and IaaS functionality. This enables us to target key use cases such as big data and HPC computing in which both companies have significant experience and credibility.”
H66cloud is hosted in Sweden and through their partnership with CloudSigma will be able to serve customers globally. The company is also planning to add more specialised business requirements to the H66cloud platform with the addition of high performance specialist cloud options optimised for blockchain, rendering, machine learning and artificial intelligence type applications.
David Rowe concludes “The H66cloud platform will significantly add to our capabilities in traditional colocation at our Boden facility and helps us spread the green cloud infrastructure message further afield. We intend to extend the H66cloud service in the near future to add high performance compute capabilities including cryptographic and blockchain algorithm services.”
Most of us agree that the planet could do with a little help right now. Yet it seems fairly obvious that the data universe continues to grow and consume ever more resources. And of course we are all conscious of value for money.
The team at H66 are on a mission to create a new benchmark for sustainable and responsible cloud infrastructure. We chose Boden in Sweden to create a template for best practice, the greenest and the most power-efficient cloud infrastructure we could build. Boden is “probably the best” location for a green data center in the world. More than plenty hydropower, perfect climate for cooling all those hot servers, natural electricity grid redundancy and reliability and super-connected.
We hope you will join our ultra-green cloud infrastructure quest and help the planet breathe a little easier.
