We’re looking forward to another great year, HTG!
As I begin to pack up my bags to head down to Orlando for HTG’s Q4 Meeting, I think about what the last five years have been like for Green Cloud as an HTG vendor sponsor. Not only have we formed fantastic relationships with the HTG team, we’ve established sincere partnerships with other vendors as well. And there have been even more great things to come out of HTG for Green Cloud, like having a seat at the table, talking with best in class MSPs, understanding the needs of those MSPs and exploring potential partnerships.
In truth, we consider HTG as more than a vendor sponsorship, a trade show, or even a partnership. We have built a relationship. The value HTG has brought to Green Cloud is top-notch.
On another note, it will take me some time getting used to calling this group IT Nation Evolve. After five years, this old dog will need to learn a new trick.
What hasn’t changed? For one, our dedication to this peer group and its members is strong as ever, as well as our commitment to be the best cloud department for those that partner with us.
With all that being said, I’m heading to the marketing closet to pack up some cool swag for all of the awesome HTG — er IT Nation Evolve — partners we’ll get to meet in Orlando. Swing by booth #35 near the lounge at Amplify to get some swag for yourself (and some to take home to those holding down the fort)!

Green Cloud’s story began on Brown Street, a quaint office full of eager entrepreneurs and tech experts. Back in 2011, our team was small and tight-knit. Today, in 2018, our team is still tight-knit, but our company has expanded exponentially.
We stayed put at Brown Street for a year and a half. Eventually, we outgrew the space and moved to NEXT. The NEXT building, a co-working space bursting with start-ups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, was a good home for Green Cloud for more than five years. After our company had accumulated 570 partners and over 70 employees, it became clear we had outgrown NEXT. The time came for Green Cloud to move — yet again — only this time, we were ready for an office of our own.
In January 2018, Green Cloud took the plunge; we decided to move into Haywood Ridge, a brand new building located on Airport Road. In fact, Haywood Ridge was so brand new that our office wasn’t quite ready when we were. Construction began in January, but our space would take months to complete. Green Cloud was in a bit of a bind.
Fortunately, in the summer of 2018, we found ourselves in a temporary home for a little over a month at Immedion. Albeit cramped at times, our team learned the value of working closely with one another. We grew professionally; the space at Immedion allowed us to easily bounce ideas back and forth between one another and gain a greater appreciation for one another’s various roles at Green Cloud.
Then, finally, Green Cloud packed up and headed to our permanent work home. September 25th — the day of our official Ribbon Cutting ceremony — began the start of a new chapter for Green Cloud. The best part about this new office? We have room to grow and further expand our company.
We could not be more excited about what the future has in store for Green Cloud Technologies. Take a look at our new office below.
Green Cloud Technologies “Green Cloud”, a Greenville-based cloud technology solutions provider, opened the company’s new Greenville, S.C. headquarters with South Carolina economic development leaders, county and city officials during a ribbon cutting ceremony today. Green Cloud was founded in 2011 by IT, telecom and communications veterans who created a successful business model completely focused on building partner networks and providing customers with world-class servers, backup and recovery solutions.
Today, Green Cloud is one of the largest independent channel-only cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) providers in the country with an expansive suite of Cisco Powered, cloud-based products, services and support that are scalable to applications of any size — from SMBs to enterprise-class organizations. The company’s new 14,470 square-foot headquarters features semi-private workspaces with ergonomically designed workstations, a large open meeting space with high ceilings and natural light, a technology-rich multimedia studio for audio and video productions and a high-tech security system with smartphone office entry.
“Our new, modern office will accommodate our projected growth and build on our culture of innovation, teamwork and collaboration so we can continue to deliver sophisticated, cloud-based technology solutions to our customers,” said Green Cloud CEO and Co-Founder, Keith Coker. “Green Cloud’s accelerated growth over the last eight years is directly attributed to our talented, innovative and customer-centric employees, and today is a celebration of their contributions as we prepare for future growth.”
