KIRKLAND, Wash., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kelly Ireland, CEO of CB Technologies, cbtechinc.com, announced her investment into Greenqloud, a software company focused on developing advanced on-premise IaaS cloud software, and joins the Board of Directors.
Kelly Ireland's investment is another step in further developing CB Technologies' strategy of expanding into new industry verticals and leveraging the growing acceptance of Cloud Computing, as well as Hardware, Software and Infrastructure as a Service.
Greenqloud has made great progress since pivoting the company from an IaaS company to a pure software company focusing on Qstack, its on-premise IaaS and infrastructure management software. Qstack quickly gained attention not only from industry leaders, resulting in partnerships with Microsoft, VMWare, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Netapp and Hitachi, but from Kelly Ireland herself earlier this year when CB Technologies became technology partners with Greenqloud.
"I was introduced to Greenqloud about 18 months ago and have been watching their evolution closely ever since," stated Ireland. "Greenqloud's approach to development is one of the smartest I've seen in this market. Their product, Qstack, showcases not only their ability to innovate quickly but also their clear understanding from the beginning that OpenStack would not provide all the needed functions to deliver a true infrastructure management framework." CB Technologies has adopted Qstack as their Cloud management software of choice and is currently deploying it within their HPCaaS solution hosted at Switch's SuperNAP facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Kelly Ireland has extensive experience running a very successful IT company in the US and vast knowledge about the market we operate in. Having her as a member of our Board aligns perfectly with Greenqloud's goal of finding the right strategic partner and investor in the company. Kelly is the best possible asset for a company like ours and there is no doubt in my mind that she will help Greenqloud capitalize on the growing global demand for our solution," said Greenqloud CEO, Jonsi Stefansson.
