With Storage Qloud™ customers pay only for the average space they use per month, measured in GigaBytes. Each gigabyte costs a fraction of a dollar (or Euro, or GBP…). GreenQloud bases the cost for storage on averages so that customers don’t have to worry during times when they temporarily need more space.
Storage Qloud™ Buckets– basic containers that hold data– are like USB hard drives except they live online and are equipped with unique internet addresses (URLs) enabling customers to access data at all times. They work perfectly for storing and delivering content on the web and to computers and mobile devices.
Storage Qloud™ is a new type of online storage called Object Storage. Its use cases are many– web storage, backups, syncing and key-value databases. Unlike traditional storage where you forced to buy large amounts of storage space in blocks, object storage is elastic. In other words, Storage Qloud™ grows (or shrinks) on demand, ultimately saving you valuable time and money.
Static content like images and videos, especially if that content is being stored in a SQL database, tend to bottleneck web applications. By offloading content into Storage Qloud™ the content is automatically load-balanced, allowing you to use less memory and cpu on the server side.
GreenQloud enables users to set view and edit permissions for groups of data and individual files on Storage Qloud™. All data going in and out of Storage Qloud™ passes through industry standard SSL encrypted connections.
Each file stored on Storage Qloud™ is automatically replicated at least two times and spread to three independent hardware storage pods across two data centers. In the highly unlikely event that two of those storage pods were to fail, Storage Qloud™ instantly replicates and rebuilds the missing copies on working servers.
We calculate the CO2 emissions each user has avoided by using GreenQloud, based on home origin and energy usage.
On the Truly Green™ Dashboard customers instantly see bandwidth statistics and the amount of space used on Storage Qloud™, in an interactive graph. On a single page customers have an at-a-glance view of cloud usage and a continually updated guesstimate of the monthly bill, based on that usage.
GreenQloud’s cloud services like Compute Qloud™ and Storage Qloud™ are easy to use through the GreenQloud management console. But, they also work great with many 3rd party clients like the open source Cyberduck app, CloudBerry’s Backup or from our WordPress plugins.
If you are not a fan of GUIs, need to script your backups or integrate Storage Qloud™ as a delivery platform with your server apps, we have great news! There are many command line clients and libraries that you can use. Check out our support forums for a few great ones.
Storage Qloud’s API is compatible with the industry standard AWS S3 API. The standard AWS API tools work out of the box making GreenQloud a cost effective and easy way to clean up your cloud. It’s so easy, it took us less than an hour to “port” a S3 plugin for WordPress to use Storage Qloud™ for greener WordPress Blogs.
By moving your data to GreenQloud’s Storage Qloud™ it instantly becomes Truly Green™.
Let us explain:
Most data centers which store your online data tap into existing power grids that rely predominantly on fossil fuel energy resources such as coal and oil. Since online data storage is growing exponentially, it is more important than ever to seek sustainable data storage resources, like GreenQloud. Our data center partners generate power from 100% renewable energy resources, which enables us to offer cost effective clean cloud solutions to you.
