GoGrid is one of the Platinum Sponsors of this week’s Cloud Connect 2012 conference and Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The event promises to be a memorable one for cloud newcomers as well as those of us trying to keep up with the blazing pace of cloud innovation.


This year, we’re particularly excited to be focusing on GoGrid’s hybrid infrastructure solution, which we think combines the best of both the physical and virtual worlds. We believe that your company is unique, and your infrastructure should be, too. Stop by our booth 709 to find out what your unique “cloud fingerprint” looks like. Chances are it’s a flavor of our hybrid solution.



Maybe you’re wondering whether to keep your dedicated servers or move to the cloud. What if you could have it all? Join one of our solutions architects as he walks through real-life examples of how hybrid hosting can improve your business’s infrastructure: Tuesday, Feb. 14, 3:35 – 3:55pm in the Cloud Solutions Theater on the Expo Floor. Here’s the presentation description: “Different businesses have different infrastructure needs. And the choices of clouds, colocation, or dedicated services can be daunting if not confusing. So why choose just one when GoGrid’s hybrid architecture (a union of the best of virtual and physical) provides options for both flexibility and growth? Physical hardware provides guaranteed, dedicated, high performance coupled with an assurance of strict data control and security, while cloud architecture scales when your business demands it. Learn the secrets of hybrid hosting and how it can improve your business’s infrastructure in this 20-minute walk-through.

Then on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 1:15 – 2:15pm (Grand Ballroom H), learn how Microgroove is creating a high-performance, cost-effective cloud environment for the music industry with GoGrid. The title says it all: “Performance Matters, Especially in the Music Industry – Global Hybrid Infrastructure Makes Artists Sing.” Here’s an overview: Learn first hand how Microgroove leveraged physical and virtual infrastructure components in creating a high-performance, cost-effective cloud environment for the music industry. One that easily supported their need for cloud scalability coupled with the permanence and single-tenancy of dedicated servers — a hybrid solution not found in commodity clouds. Microgroove’s technology platform running on GoGrid is powering hundreds of popular artists’ sites from Snoop Dogg to Yani as well as an eCommerce site of 1.5 million+ SKUs.
