"Great cloud provider for MSPs"

What do you like best?

Green Cloud understands the MSP business and how to work with partners. As an MSP we don't want to be treated like an IT staff from large corporation. We have to have multi-tenant systems and don't need tier 1 support, we do that ourselves. Green Cloud gets that.

Their migration services can help to make much of i turn key.

What do you dislike?

So far so good. We have moved a number of clients to Green Cloud and no problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Call Green Cloud. Leverage their migration tools and support

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a multi tenant cloud platform to allow us to migrate multiple clients. Green Cloud migration services make it really easy and the ongoing support it top notch.

"Cost effect IaaS on a tried and true platform"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that the IaaS service is based on vCloud. We have been a VMware shop since the begining of our virtualization, and the familiarity of the platform was very welcoming.

What do you dislike?

Like any cloud hosted solution, you are at the mercy of various things when accessing your virtual datacenter. Hosting side ISP troubles, local ISP troubles, regional outages, DDoS, DNS issue, etc. Based on my discussion with Green Cloud, their newer datacenter have some additional resilency baked in from the ground up as they were building out the locations, but not everything has trickled down to the older datacenters. If you can, try to put your services in one of their newest datacenters to help alleviate some of the access issues with hosted resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As I said earlier in the review - try to get your resources in the newest datacenter you can.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No need to incur capital costs to build our your private cloud solution - Green Cloud has it all built out, and charges you monthly for what you use. We were able to bring our private cloud offering to market 10x faster since we didn't have to build out the datacenter ourselves.

"Wonderful experience and great customer and partner services"

What do you like best?

The customer care and partner experience are great! Very responsive and a pleasure to speak with. Marketing material and webinars related to their services partnership is very detailed and clear. The white label offering is great and provides another avenue for small to medium size business to re-brand services and material.

What do you dislike?

We have not disliked anything since becoming a partner. The entire process was seamless and easy going. Both the account representatives and the solution engineers had all of the information that we needed and if they did not know the answers right away they provided them in a timely fashion.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Approve

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are partners of Green Cloud and are utilizing their cloud hosting technologies for our partners who require specific services .

"Use our Infrastructure and pay for what you need, when you need it "

What do you like best?

IaaS has helped my clients enjoy the use of the Cloud to keep Infrastructure money in their pocket and not have the large up front expense hit all at once but they are able to pay as they need or use more.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any issues with IaaS but some of my clients feel that Tech support should be a little more knowledgeable in IT.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If it's time for a large capital outlay, this may be a direction you want to look into.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Clients are able to hold off on larger Capital expenses to reallocate those funds to other needed projects. Decommissioned equipment can be sold for a modest gain and the clients still don't have a large outlay.

"An MSP's Opinion of Green Cloud"

What do you like best?

Green Cloud has been an invaluable asset and tool to my company. As a MSP I have about 50% of my clients using either their hosted servers or disaster recovery services. They have ALWAYS been accommodating to me and/or my clients whether during or after traditional business hours. Not once have I experienced a time when I could not get quick resolution to an issue. They are truly willing to bend over backwards for me and my clients and we all appreciate that.

What do you dislike?

To date I have yet to be dissatisfied with Green Cloud.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Whether as a end user or an MSP, I would highly recommend considering Green Cloud. Their friendly support staff, engineers and sales support make working with Green Cloud a pleasure.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My clients either have their servers backed up with their disaster recovery service or they host servers at their datacenter. Clients host RDS applications, LOB applications and revenue generating services with Green Cloud.

"Reliable and responsive"

What do you like best?

GreenCloud maintains a high level of functional up time, which is critical for this service. Additionally, their technical support staff is very helpful and responsive. If you sign up for additional maintenance alerts, their NOC team is very communicative of any scheduled maintenance or potential issues (such as upstream ISP issues) so you never have any surprises.

What do you dislike?

My least favorite thing is that more of our clients aren't yet migrated to GC's infrastructure!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for something a little more customized or specific than a generic offering from Azure or AWS, Wholesale IaaS might be the answer you're looking for.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have many clients with scattered offices throughout the country or world, and it makes sense for them to move to a cloud environment. We also have clients who aren't interested or are unable to front the large sum of initial cost plus continued maintenance of physical infrastructure on their own premises. Additionally it allows us great flexibility for remote workers, and for customers needing the utmost priority in up time without interruption.

"Using Green Cloud for VMware DR solution."

What do you like best?

Green Cloud has an infrastructure platform that is straight forward to get connected and begin replication of VM's. The management console is easy to understand and use.

What do you dislike?

The solution seems designed for small companies that have a straight forward infrastructure. We have multiple VLAN's and IP requirements that bogged down the process. They provide the infrastructure and we need to do all the work on top of that.this is more difficult in our complex environment.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a couple of customers who require a DR solution that is near real time. Green Cloud allows us to provide DR without replicating our entire environment. This is a huge cost savings.

"How you would do your Datacenter, without the costs!"

What do you like best?

These folks do Datacenter like most SMB and enterprise companies would like to do theirs - Cisco, VMware, Microsoft, flash storage, 10G networking, etc. They build a Datacenter not with no-name, white box hardware, but with real enterprise grade goodies, just the way we all would like to do it given the right budget. Low monthly costs, low one time charges, amazing flexibility!

What do you dislike?

We would absolute love a Datacenter closer to the Chicagoland area.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need a rock solid platform to resell for those clients who needed out of the on-prem world but wanted more peace of mind than the public cloud offered.

"Greencloud, great for xaas"

What do you like best?

Absolute Flexibility and their ability to meet and exceed your needs. The level of simplicity and speed of deployment allows for an easier implementation and enhanced customer experience.

What do you dislike?

The general perception of this being a new or risky platform. in reality its just a refined version of hosting. And that I can't sell enough of it :)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

be sure you understand all dependencies and don't migrate legacy mistakes

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backup aas and Infrastructure aas have allowed us to update antiquated infrastructures where on prem hardware would have cost 3 times the 3 year cost of IaaS.

"Great company to do business with!"

What do you like best?

Friendly and fun staff. Everyone I have talked with so far has been very polite and seems to have a good sense of humor. I believe those things are important.

What do you dislike?

There was a little bit of confusion as to who would be configuring the ASA when we were migrating servers and this caused some unwanted downtime.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to have a hosted solution to offer our clients. Green Cloud has solved that problem for us. Also, we needed somewhere to host our equipment and they have solved that for us as well.

"Great IaaS Product"

What do you like best?

Fast response times on support and even faster time to resolution on tickets. This is exceptionally important when you are reselling GC as a re-branded product.

What do you dislike?

Initially, their regional presence was somewhat small and we mostly use their service for DRaaS. Since expanding into other regions, they are much more attractive for DR solutions as our customers generally expect some geographical diversity in their strategies.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give your customers exact requirements to the GC dev team and you cannot go wrong in meeting your needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Substantial savings on re-branded cloud.

"Oversold services that you don't do"

What do you like best?

Good ongoing sales person contact and follow up

What do you dislike?

You completely oversold your replication capabilities. We were sold a solution where you'd enable the solution, monitor the solution, and in an emergency, cut over the solution. In the end you don't do any of those things, you really only provide IaaS and licensing of Zerto.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Provide a better exact understanding to prospects of what Green Cloud really does. Do not over sell what your people will not do.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a few specific clients that want high availability and failover. We offer a fully managed cloud solution with hosted desktops and Zerto seems like the right solution. You were really hard to work with and in the end, just don't have the solution that we were sold.

"Green Cloud - Excellent customer support"

What do you like best?

Green Cloud's technical support team is very responsive. Also, if the engineer who answers the phone can't resolve the issue quickly, it will be escalated and resolved quickly at the next level. The sales team is also very responsive and will often get back to me with information during non business hours.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything that I dislike about Green Cloud.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend Green Cloud and believe they provide an excellent mix of value and high quality products.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lower cost of ownership of corporate IT resources.

"Green Cloud delivers top notch services and support!"

What do you like best?

Support from Green Cloud is outstanding. I have sold Green Cloud solutions for years and could not recommend a better partner for cloud offerings. The flexibility from the team has been a blessing time after time.

What do you dislike?

Metered billing would be a nice addition. We have no additional complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Call Disruptive Technology, Inc. to support your move to the cloud. We have vast experience with Green Cloud and are always excited to deliver this fantastic offering to our customers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use GC to provide sound solutions for our customers.

"Great support department!"

What do you like best?

It was rare, but we would hit issues that would require us to call the support department. Greencloud was always quick to respond and wouldn't stop until the issue was resolved. Definitely, someone to keep in mind when making a decision.

What do you dislike?

In my opinion, the firewall controls are subpar at best. Very little logging that you can see on your end.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A client needed a server offsite in the "cloud". The highly available server meant that my team didn't have to worry about any issues after hours.

"Amazing Service!"

What do you like best?

From the technical expertise, to the cost, to the quality of service, Greencloud has been clutch. They have an amazing knowledgeable staff that can pretty much get anything done. They also have a wide birth of products and services.

What do you dislike?

Not much, i think they continue to innovate, and as long as they do so, i believe they can go far. Perhaps more datacenters in certain locales is needed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IAAS customized to fit your needs, not inflexible like some of the other cloud vendors out there.

"Great Regional Product for Flexible Deployments"

What do you like best?

I can pick up the phone and call someone whenever I need something and don't have to wait too long for a response.

What do you dislike?

The billing needs to be a lot more intuitive as it can get complicated, especially as you add services.

A nice VMWare UI would be nice too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product with regional support.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Flexible Solution that is reasonably sustainable. This has allowed us to flexibly scale as we need to and the costs are controlled. We only pay for what we need.

"Recommended IaaS Partner of Choice for our MSP"

What do you like best?

Sales and support team very knowledgeable and prompt response. Greencloud's alerting is proactive and infrastructure performance is very good.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to have better marketing collateral for MSP's

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud Services that are very responsive and over 99% up-time. Moving to the cloud is very hard decision for many SMB's. If the infrastructure is unreliable and preforms poorly businesses would move back and never consider cloud again. Moving businesses to the cloud makes management and DR much easier for MSP's.

"Great IaaS Partner"

What do you like best?

I like that the product works well and that their support is responsive.

What do you dislike?

I previously was not enthused about all of my clients' data being across the country, but they've now expanded to other regions, yielding a better overall product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's worth the cost to have the automation and DR option.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automated offsite backup and recovery options were lacking in our product lineup, and Greencloud's offerings have perfectly aligned with our clients' needs.

The company that I work for has partnered with green cloud and we offer it as secondary data storage option. I like the fact that it is so versatile and a great back up

This is a great product for what it does. Cloud storage is always an asset to have.

"Flexible but may need more Reliability"

What do you like best?

i like the ability to have a centralized server store and to change hardware when needed

What do you dislike?

internet issues at the Data center causing disconnects are out of my control and have cause downtime

Recommendations to others considering the product:

test the service by using it for one of your own servers for about a year before deciding to use it to see what kind of issues may arise and if that will work for your customer

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

need to buy new hardware is gone. we will realize the benefits over time when we are always up to date with no large capital expense.

"Great Flexable Solution"

What do you like best?

Green Could is a simple and fast solution. Happy with the system overall.

What do you dislike?

Not necessarily a Green Cloud issue just general internet congestion.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are several cloud offerings currently out there with complicated pricing structures. Green Cloud's simple offering structure makes it easier. Green Cloud helps solve the issues of Disaster Recovery and does simplify offsite backups.
