GreenQloud runs on both Linux AND Windows servers. It provides advanced AWS-compatible API controls for full automation of IT services. It offers scalable, secure and distributed high performance servers and on-demand storage as well as an easy-to-use management console. Its APIs are compatible with the most widely used IaaS clouds, which makes migration to its greener services simple. Managing websites, web storage, backups, key-value databases, scaling web apps and scientific computing are some of the areas of expertise of the company.

The two services offered by the company are Compute Qloud and Storage Qloud. Compute Qloud service can be utilized for easy server and application deployment.
