How To Set Up Private IP Segregation with CloudPassage in the GoGrid Cloud

Thursday, September 29th, 2011 by

CloudPassage is a key security partner that has images available on the GoGrid Partner Exchange. The CloudPassage images on GoGrid come pre-installed with their Halo daemon. This is available on CentOS, Debian, Red Hat, and Ubuntu on both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors. Alternately, you can launch a GoGrid base image and install the Halo daemon on your own. This tutorial assumes that you have a basic understanding of Linux and SSH as well as basic firewall strategies. It also assumes that you know how to configure private IPs so that will not be covered here.

How to Set Up a Gluster File System within the GoGrid Cloud (Part 1)

Friday, August 19th, 2011 by

In this blog post series, I want to take a closer look at a storage technology called Gluster File System, and how it can be set up (this article), connected to (article #2) and expand storage (article #3). This is the first blog post of the series and I will review what GlusterFS is, why you would consider using it, and how to deploy it using the GoGrid GlusterFS Partner GSI.

GoGrid offers a great storage solution called Cloud Storage. But what if you want to deploy your own storage so that you can directly control performance and redundancy? What software would you use to provide this? The simple answer is Gluster. It is a powerful software-based storage solution that offers a centralized controlled storage pool management system that is very easy to use.

There are many different ways to take advantage of the GlusterFS storage solution. (Note: in the descriptions below a “brick” is a GoGrid Virtual Server.)

1. Distributed Volumes:

“Distributed volumes distribute files throughout the bricks in the volume. You can use distributed volumes where the requirement is to scale storage and the redundancy is either not important or is provided by other hardware/software layers.” – Gluster.org

GoGrid Cloud Survey Report – Security & Compliance (Part 4)

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011 by

Last time in the GoGrid Cloud Survey Report series, I wrote on cloud use cases and reasons for migrating to the cloud. This week, I wanted to focus on everybody’s favorite topic: security and compliance in the cloud. ;-)

If you’re brand new to this series, let me catch you up to speed. At the beginning of the year, GoGrid gathered feedback from over 500 CTOs, developers and IT professionals relating to cloud computing and best practices. This week, we’re highlighting the results from the question “What type of security/compliance do you require in the cloud?

You may have noticed, whenever there is a conversation about Infrastructure-as-a-Service, the security debate is sure to follow. We wanted to see what types of security the IT industry uses and which were the most important to maintaining compliance.

What Type of Security/Compliance Do You Require in the Cloud?

As seen in the chart above, private VLANs, network layer firewalls and DDoS mitigation are the most required form of security according to our respondents, followed closely by Virtual Private Networks.

GoGrid & Equinix Webinar: Learn Why 2011 is the Year of the Hosted Private Cloud

Thursday, May 12th, 2011 by

On May 25th, GoGrid and partner Equinix will be educating you on why we call 2011 the “Year of the Hosted Private Cloud.” If you are doing business that requires technology, in order to increase profitability and productivity, you frequently need to lower your total cost of ownership of that technology. Cloud Computing has been great for this as we see with the 10s of thousands of active GoGrid customers currently. As corporations and enterprises expand their technology footprints, they need to carefully weigh the various infrastructure solutions available to them. But be forewarned, some of the antiquated options are expensive and can consume huge amounts of human capital in the process. For many, a Hosted Private Cloud is a much better option.

While public clouds offer incredible advantages over traditional, dare I say, old fashioned (physical) infrastructure implementations, sometimes corporations need to be able to leverage the benefits and technology of a state-of-the-art public cloud, but within a non-shared environment. This is where GoGrid’s Hosted Private Cloud comes in to play.

On Wednesday, May 25th from 11:00am to 11:30am PST, GoGrid and Equinix will be providing an educational webinar to discuss a variety of topics surrounding public and private clouds, including:

  • Distinguishing between a Public vs. Hosted Private Cloud
  • Determining which type of cloud is right for your business
  • How enterprises are leveraging the private cloud
