Green Cloud Technologies, a Greenville, S.C., Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions provider, has a new delayed billing option for large virtual machine purchases. With this new option, the first invoice would be delayed for an extended period of time to help organizations balance their financial objectives during the transition from on-premises servers to Green Cloud’s virtual platform.
Delayed billing allows an IT staff to plan and implement its cloud environment weeks or even months before they receive the first bill.
“We have helped move many businesses to the cloud with 20 to 100 servers. Making the decision to go to the cloud is only the first step. This program helps ease the financial burden by allowing them more time to plan and implement the migration,” said Dan Sterling, president of Green Cloud.
Green Cloud’s new option allows a customer to delay billing for up to two weeks per 10 virtual machines purchased.
“If a business decides to purchase 50 virtual machines from Green Cloud, it makes sense to allow them up to 10 weeks to actually implement the migration,” says Shay Houser, CEO of Green Cloud. “We do not know of any other public cloud providers that allow any delayed billing, much less by several months.”
