InterGrid is an on-demand computing provider that offers cost-effective solutions to complex computing problems. While many customers need support for months at a time, InterGrid saw an opportunity in companies that need only occasional bursts of computing
power—for instance, to use computer-aided drafting data to render high-quality, three-dimensional images. In response, it developed its GreenButton solution on Windows Azure, which is hosted through Microsoft data centers. Available to software vendors that
serve industries such as manufacturing, GreenButton can be embedded into applications to give users the ability to call on the power of cloud computing as needed. By building GreenButton on Windows Azure, InterGrid can deliver a cost-effective, scalable solution
and has the opportunity to reach another 100 million industry users with a reliable, trustworthy environment.
