Microsoft today announced the acquisition of GreenButton, a New Zealand based Cloud focused startup. GreenButton is a leading provider of integrated on-demand solutions that allow customers to manage compute-intensive workloads in the cloud. Using GreenButton’s solutions, applications can be cloud-enabled quickly without recoding existing software. This will help enterprise customers in processing massive amounts of information and running compute-intensive simulations with ease. GreenButton solutions won’t be available for customers after this deal, instead Microsoft is working in integrating this into Microsoft Azure platform. .
As a result of today’s acquisition, we’ll be working to integrate those solutions with the Microsoft Azure platform, enabling customers to simply and easily solve complex problems, get more from their data and drive their business forward. Our work integrating GreenButton’s leading technology with the enterprise-grade scale and global reach of Azure starts today, as we welcome the New Zealand-based team to the Azure family. As a result, the existing GreenButton service will no longer be available to new customers. We look forward to launching a new service integrated in Azure later in the year.
It’s an exciting time for businesses that are investing in Big Data and Big Compute. With this acquisition, we are looking forward to democratizing the use Big Compute through the power of the cloud, so that organizations from all walks of life can use their data to transform their business and the world.
