GoGrid and Stratonomic Partner to Enable Disaster Recovery in the Cloud

With GoGrid and Stratonomic, businesses now have a cost effective way to setup a failover site in the cloud for production web applications running on colocated servers, leased dedicated servers, or even within a corporate datacenter.

San Francisco, CA August 18, 2009 — GoGrid, the Cloud Computing division of ServePath, today announced a strategic partnership with Stratonomic to offer Disaster Recovery (DR) in the cloud – Cloud Recovery™ – for hosted web applications. With Stratonomic and GoGrid, anyone can have an affordable, enterprise-level DR environment set up and available in the cloud.

The process of setting up a DR site is straight forward and easy. Stratonomic builds and maintains the DR environment in the GoGrid cloud. This includes configuring database replication, file system synchronization, and a monthly verification with an actual transaction that ensures the DR systems are fully operational and ready to take traffic. Stratonomic can also provide robust cloud hosting solutions that involve fully active secondary points of presence in the cloud utilizing global load balancing and hybrid cloud solutions, allowing companies to burst their peak traffic into the cloud sparing primary systems from being overloaded.

Businesses typically agree that they want a Disaster Recovery solution but many are daunted by the high cost to setup and maintain a functioning DR site. In the past, DR implementation and management could cost nearly as much as your primary point of presence and can be a very expensive and time consuming endeavor to create. The partnership between GoGrid and Stratonomic allows businesses to benefit from a DR solution that takes advantage of the elasticity of the GoGrid cloud. This means that businesses don’t have to manage additional server hardware resulting in substantial cost savings. Businesses only pay for what they use, making DR in the GoGrid cloud an effective and affordable DR solution.

“The GoGrid Cloud is an ideal on-ramp for companies looking to bolster their online presence, especially in conjunction with Stratonomic’s Disaster Recovery solution,” said John Keagy, CEO and Co-Founder of GoGrid. “Stratonomic’s DR solutions within GoGrid provide unparalleled and critical peace-of-mind for any CTO, IT Manager or SysAdmin, ensuring that sites are always available, even when the unthinkable happens.”

“Stratonomic is excited to partner with GoGrid a leader in cloud computing” said Ben Sharma, CEO and founder of Stratonomic. “GoGrid’s outstanding cloud server and network infrastructure coupled with Stratonomic’s unique Cloud Recovery solutions offer the best possible solution in Disaster Recovery.”

Cloud Recovery™ Plans start at only $349.99/month and, depending on the service, includes:

  • Secondary data center location
  • Database replication
  • File system synchronization
  • Dynamic DNS failover
  • Global load balancing across primary and secondary sites
  • Monthly verification test
  • Monthly verification test report
  • Verification server(s)
  • 24 hour alert notification to your Web/IT team in the event of a disaster
