CHEYENNE, Wyo. & BOSTON – Green House Data, a leading provider of digital transformation consulting and managed IT services, today announced that Clubessential, a leading provider of software solutions for club operations, is leveraging its hybrid cloud solution to better address expanding business needs and guest expectations of its growing client roster.
Clubessential’s unified suite of software modules helps enhance, automate, and facilitate operations for over 1,300 golf clubs, country clubs, yacht clubs, athletic clubs, and resorts, which together serve over two million members worldwide. By taking care of day-to-day business needs, including public websites, accounting, point-of-sale, customer relationship management, and reservations, Clubessential solutions empower club staff to focus on what matters most: delivering superior guest experiences.
Following a period of substantial growth, both organically and via strategic acquisition, Clubessential needed to modernize an inherited legacy IT environment being used to host front- and back-end web applications, as well as Payment Card Industry (PCI)-compliant payment applications. This aging infrastructure was housed in a less-than-ideal colocated environment and required substantial upgrades, including virtualizations, consolidation, and business continuity measures.
After considering numerous options, Clubessential determined that a hybrid cloud solution with Green House Data provided an ideal fit for their needs. Green House Data’s team worked closely with Clubessential to architect, test, and roll out redundant VMware virtual servers in conjunction with a custom private cloud using colocated hardware and dedicated SSDs for high I/O performance.
“The private cloud Green House Data provided was able to give us the high performance we needed for our data layer,” said Jason House, Clubessential’s Chief Technology Officer. “We were able to put the critical hardware that was performance-sensitive in the private cloud, and then all the dynamic web servers and things we could scale up and down based on traffic in the public cloud.”
Ultimately, nearly 40 physical Windows and SQL servers were consolidated down to 15 virtual servers with minimal to no downtime, helping to modernize the environment while dramatically reducing licensing compliance requirements and costs.
To assess the solution’s impact on client experience, Clubessential looked to its central performance metric—SQL server waits, or the time a SQL server waits on CPU, RAM, or disk to deliver needed data to the web server. Post-migration, Clubessential’s SQL server wait times dropped between 40 and 50 percent.
“We were actively measuring database performance pre- and post-migration because that’s what causes customers to notice problems,” said House. “The comparison charts were night and day.”
Beyond these benefits, the solution enables the cloud environment to be managed remotely through the VMware layer, with physical hardware managed by Green House Data staff onsite in Cheyenne. As Clubessential continues to grow, they have a service provider that can scale alongside them.

Upland, CA – RackNerd LLC, an infrastructure as a service provider today announced the official launch of its new product offering: Windows VPS. Powered by AMD Ryzen processors and RAID protected NVMe SSD storage, RackNerd’s new NVMe Windows VPS offerings will be deployed out of its Los Angeles DC-02 (Multacom) facility, delivering a premium network optimized to provide the best connectivity to Asia, Oceania, United States, and more. The BGP network is optimized by Noction IRP (Intelligent Routing Platform) in real time to provide the best network paths and latency to the end-user.
RackNerd’s NVMe Windows VPS series will be provisioned exclusively with DDR4 RAM, providing more memory capabilities and bandwidth than ever imagined before.
This launch makes RackNerd the first provider to offer AMD Ryzen NVMe Windows VPS out of Multacom’s enterprise, SOC 2 + HIPAA compliant datacenter facility in Los Angeles, California.
“When building out our Windows VPS platform, we wanted to deliver an experience that is light years ahead. That means we didn’t cut any corners when building out our infrastructure, we rigorously tested and designed our Windows VPS IaaS offering exclusively with AMD Ryzen 3900X processors, featuring DDR4 RAM and enterprise-grade Intel NVMe drives. The performance of each Windows VPS is stunning.” discloses Dustin B. Cisneros, CEO of RackNerd.
In a recent survey sent to beta testers, a bulk of users reported an overall 4-5 times faster speeds with RackNerd’s new Windows VPS platform compared to other Windows VPS hosting providers. This impressive result translates to increased productivity, and the ability for users to run heavier workloads for less, compared to other competing platforms – delivering tremendous value. These NVMe Windows Ryzen VPS are snappy!
“Performance was a heavy emphasis when designing our new Windows VPS platform. When it comes to Windows VPS, we understand that consumers simply want an experience that is rapid, responsive, and highly available. As an illustrative example – in a soft-launch we ran, we’ve even had some users tell us that their Ryzen-powered Windows VPS with us with just 1 core outperforms their Windows VPS with another host that had 4 Intel Xeon Cores! This is thanks to our platform leveraging the unmatched performance of AMD Ryzen and Enterprise Intel NVMe SSD drives.” Cisneros further elaborated.
Both individuals and enterprises looking to deploy NVMe Windows Virtual Private Servers with Full RDP Administrator Access can now benefit from RackNerd’s new product offering. To learn more, please visit: https://www.racknerd.com/windows-vps
