Greenqloud is a "cloud computing software company with headquarters in "Reykjavik, "Iceland and office in "Seattle, "Washington, offering cloud computing software and services. Greenqloud develops and sells the cloud and "infrastructure management software "Qstack for the global market.



Founded in 2010, the company initially sold public cloud computing services, such as web hosting and data storage, marketed as "infrastructure as a service (IaaS), powered by "data centers using "100% renewable energy in Iceland. Most hosting companies buy "carbon offset credits as a green marketing measure,[3] and host data at multiple data centers on different continents as the solution for international sites.

Early on, Greenqloud began building upon the software startup ",[4] which later became "Apache CloudStack.[5] In 2014 the company released its own cloud management platform, "Qstack, to be deployed on private and hybrid environments. In that same year, Greenqloud shifted its entire operational focus from public cloud services to "Qstack, and began support and certifications for the software.[6]

In 2016, Qstack already supported leading hypervisors, including "VMware, "KVM and "Hyper-V and "bare metal provisioning. In early 2017, Qstack will add container-based Application Orchestration support with an integrated "Kubernetes server, allowing its users the ability deploy "microservices and workloads on scalable clusters.[7]
