To be honest, I believe all municipalities should use a colocation provider, which is unfortunately not the case now. I do not see why an IT department should build competence on data center operations when there are plenty of other tasks to focus on. Cost-wise it is also a more favorable solution.
We have a long track-record with Green Mountain. No matter what type of question or request, they always show a positive attitude and a willingness to cater for our needs. There is little bureaucracy but rather a “yes we can do it”-mentality.
There has never been any kind of technical problems with our installation at Green Mountain. We are confident that they deliver on their 100% up-time promise.
In the start, my colleagues in the IT department were a bit skeptical of trusting an external partner with the responsibility of our data center. However, we were quickly reassured that this was the best choice for us.
We have to deal with several partners when it comes to operation and set-up in our data rooms. Therefore, it is crucial to have a contact person and organization that quickly assist us in solving both small and large challenges in our data center. Green Mountain does exactly that.
We were uncertain it would be feasible but trusted Green Mountain with the task. They have a strong reputation for delivery commitment.
With Green Mountain we experience professionality at all levels. From the sales team, to service delivery ,and technical support.
