Thursday, May 28th, 2009 by

Today we announced our partnership with Acumatica.

Some of the benefits to customers of this partnership include:

  • Access from anywhere using any common browser
  • Low cost of ownership due to no client software
  • Priced by server so you are not limited by seat licensing
  • Cloud-ready so you can pay-as-you-go for hosting
  • Zero IT hassles when deployed at GoGrid

Additional information can be found on the Acumatica partner page on the GoGrid site.

The full press release is below as well as available online. (more…) «Press Release: GoGrid and Acumatica Partner to Deliver a Cloud-Based Business Management Solution»

Video: GoGrid Cloud Computing Demo

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009 by

Today I uploaded a screencast of GoGrid in action. In the video, you can see how quickly and easily an entire Cloud Computing infrastructure can be deployed using GoGrid’s rich web interface. In this video (located here on YouTube), I show the creation and instantiation of:

  • Windows & Linux Web & Application servers
  • Database servers
  • Load Balancer
  • Cloud Storage

I hope that you find this video helpful and useful in understanding how truly easy it is to deploy a robust infrastructure in the Cloud using GoGrid. I would love to get comments and suggestion for a next round of videos as well. What would you like to see in action?
