Greenqloud, which has headquarters in Reykjavik, Iceland and has a US-based office in Seattle, Washington, develops “advanced on-premise IaaS cloud software”. It bills itself as a “key player in the global IT industry” and its services include Qstack, its proprietary cloud software solution. Kelly Ireland, the founder and CEO of CB Technologies, will also join the Greenqloud Board of Directors.
Kelly Ireland is an industry veteran who stated in IT in 1976 and has considerable reseller industry expertise.
