Green House Data, a Wyoming-based provider of colocation and cloud hosting services. has opened its first East Coast data center, the company said today. Green House will house its infrastructure with Net2EZ inside the NJ1 wholesale data center in Piscataway, New Jersey, operated by DuPont Fabros Technology.

“Because we are able to provide multiple, nationwide access points, our customers are able to reach their customers, faster, no matter where they are in North America or the Eurozone,” said Mills.
