New Version of GoGrid Released: Server Image Selection, RAM, API and Architecture Changes

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 by

Last night we release a new version of GoGrid that has a few notable changes, specifically:

  • Server Image Selection Widget
  • Smart selection of RAM allocations (and 8 GB RAM options in web GUI)
  • Updates to GoGrid API
  • Enhancements to underlying Architecture

Server Image Selection Widget

The biggest visual change in this release is to how Windows and Linux Database, Web and Applications server images are selected within the GoGrid web interface. This is essentially the framework that will be used for the upcoming MyGSI feature. Since we continue to add new images to the GoGrid image repository, and we will be enabling your own personal server images to be stored within GoGrid, we realized that the current selection process of Application & Database servers doesn’t scale very well.

Our software engineering team has come up with an elegant image selection widget that will allow you to quickly drill-down to the image type you wish. Instead of trying to articulate what the new selector looks like, here are some screenshots of what to expect.

After you click on the Add Web/Application Server Icon, you are presented with a list of all available images:

GoGrid_select_server1

You can see that the list shows the Name, Operating System (OS), Architecture type (32/64-bit), Type of server (Web/DB), Price (e.g., MS SQL, for example, shows a charge – see below) and the Date the image was Updated.
