Photos: GoGrid at Web 2.0 in San Francisco

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by

GoGrid was an exhibitor at the 2009 Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco last week. It’s a show devoted to Web 2.0 companies and technologies. We host many Web 2.0-ers on GoGrid, mainly because it’s an ideal environment to set up a dynamically scalable infrastructure, billed on a pay-as-you-go basis. Perfect for that boot-strapped company or business that are really watching their IT bottom line and don’t want huge capital expenditures hitting their already tight budgets.

Here are some photos taken by GoGrid’s Tim Wayne.

New Feature: Job History – A Log File for GoGrid

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by

Many GoGrid users may have noticed a new tab that has appeared within the GoGrid Web Interface. The new "Jobs" tab is a great new addition for those who want details on any action or activity that has taken place on an object (e.g., Server, Load Balancer, Cloud Storage) within their GoGrid account.


Think of this new section as your GoGrid log file. It keeps track of actions that you have made on objects in your account, broken down chronologically. In fact, since we have been keeping an internal log for some time, many of your older activities prior to the release of this feature will show up in your log. Also, if you use the GoGrid API, any requests made through the API show up in the Job section as well.

GoGrid actions that are currently tracked are:

  • Add Server
  • Delete Server
  • Restart Server
  • Add Load Balancer
  • Delete Load Balancer
  • Add Cloud Storage

All actions are also logged with the following information:

  • Date & Time (UTC timestamp – a good time converter can be found here)
  • Action Details
  • Action Status
  • User that requested the action
