GoGrid’s Cloud Expo Europe Debut Highlighted by Successful European Launch

Monday, February 6th, 2012 by

Cloud Expo Europe 2012 is now over, and according to everyone we spoke to, it was an unqualified success. As I mentioned in my last post, GoGrid was proud to announce the opening of its new Amsterdam-based European HQ and data center at the show. The recurring themes we heard included cloud security, the evolution of cloud services, the desire for more cloud education, and where the market is going next. A common theme from visitors to our booth was hybrid hosting and how to secure a business’s cloud infrastructure. They were also very interested in hearing about the success EMEA customers like Condé Nast are having using GoGrid.

Here are some photo highlights of the show:

How to Configure Static Routes to Traverse Traffic on CloudLink

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 by

CloudLink is infrastructure so it can enable many use cases. However, you will be unable to use it until you configure your servers to use static routes. The rest of this post will describe how to create a static route from one server in US-West-1 to servers in US-East-1. This assumes that you have not already assigned a private IP to the West server. This guide assumes that you have a basic knowledge of Linux and/or Windows and with the basic principles of networking.

Find your Private IPs

First, you will need to find your private IPs. You can find your private IP block by going to the GoGrid portal, selecting the List tab and then Network. Under Type: Private you will see your private IP blocks. In this example, this is a listing of private IP blocks for US-West-1. US-East-1 has a DIFFERENT private IP block. The gateway is +1 from the first number in your private IP block (10.109.32.1) in the example above.
