New Windows Server 2003 & 2008 Images Added to GoGrid

January 28th, 2009 by - 11,093 views

Yesterday we released some new Windows Operating System images to the GoGrid Image repository. What is notable here is that GoGrid has extended our Windows Server breadth in the Cloud and we are the first to market with the ability to instantiate Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 cloud servers with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express, Standard and Workgroup editions. Also added is support for FastCGI.

The GoGrid API which was recently put under a Creative Commons license has also been updated to support these new images.

The addition of the FastCGI component opens a new framework for high performance and reliability. FastCGI provides a high-performance alternative to the Common Gateway Interface (CGI) which is a typical way of linking external applications with Web Servers.

Currently GoGrid has 26 Windows images (16 Windows Server 2008 and 10 Windows Server 2003) and 19 Linux images (9 CentOS and 9 Red Hat Enterprise Linux). We will be continually growing this list as well as adding new Linux Operating Systems soon.
