This new partnership gives developers and IT operations teams in Fjord IT’s customer organizations reusable and collaborative tools to help them create, deploy and manage applications in the cloud in real-time

Today, we are announcing  a new partnership with Fjord IT, one of Europe’s greenest virtual data centers. This partnership will bring ElasticBox into Fjord IT’s hydropowered data centers and, eventually, to every Fjord IT customer. Our unique approach to application development, deployment, and management combines with Fjord IT’s sustainability to create a compelling platform for users. Data centers — the buildings where all information in the cloud is physically stored — take a lot of power to run. Fjord IT has built data centers powered by water and cooled by the chill of the outside air, helping customers scale their computer power in a nearly carbon-neutral way.

By bringing ElasticBox into their own data center and eventually to their customers, Fjord IT will now offer energy efficient infrastructure coupled with application delivery software that allows companies to collaboratively build and evolve their applications, all while being as environmentally-responsible as possible.

“Companies that adopt practices and tools that enable collaboration and easier ways for developers and IT operations to work together add value to every aspect of their business and drive their bottom line forward.” said Ravi Srivatsav, CEO and cofounder of ElasticBox. “Fjord IT is a forward thinking company that sees the value in not only approaching data center infrastructure in a new way, but also applications that run in the cloud. We are thrilled to help drive them forward into a greener future.”

“We believe it’s important to use — and reuse — resources as efficiently as possible to reduce emissions from the IT industry on a global scale. This principle is embedded in everything we do,” said Helge Gallefoss, CEO of Fjord IT. “By integrating ElasticBox into our data center, we are striving to make internal developer and IT operations as efficient as our cooling technology, and are excited to bring it to our customers across the world.”
