Meetup: A NOSQL Evening in Palo Alto, CA – October 26, 2010

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 by

Have you ever wondered what this “new” term “NOSQL” means? Is it something that you need to seriously look at when you are crafting your cloud environment? Is it a viable alternative to MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostreSQL or other database applications? Do you even know how to get started with it?

If any of the questions above left you scratching your head AND you are in the Silicon Valley on October 26th, you might want to head over to the following meetup “A NOSQL Evening in Palo Alto“.

meetup_GoGrid_logo_sm

Many industry experts are saying that NOSQL will be or is the database of choice for Cloud Computing because of its scalability and ability to handle data-intensive applications better. Many popular websites that are high-traffic or deliver lots of rich media are adopting and re-architecting their infrastructures to take advantage of NOSQL.

From the Event Page:

Tim Anglade (founder, A NOSQL Summer), hosts a 2-hour discussion and Q&A with representatives from some of the most prominent NOSQL vendors and projects. The topics will look back on the origins of the movement and its growing pains, discuss the current technological & business states, as well as look ahead to the opportunities for improvement and expansion.

So if you ever wanted to hear the lessons learned by an emerging tech industry, or wanted to have an inside look into the non-relational revolution, come join us for a unique evening at beautiful Dinah’s Garden Hotel, in Palo Alto, California.

Webinar: Cloud Hosting 101 – October 14, 2010

Monday, October 11th, 2010 by

If you are reading this blog post, you probably have heard the term “Cloud Computing“. But in the off chance that you haven’t, or perhaps you know of a colleague or co-worker that needs to get brought up to speed on the power of the cloud or what it can do for your company, I wanted to be sure that you knew about an upcoming webinar that we at GoGrid will be hosting called “Cloud Hosting 101“.

To be clear, this is NOT a webinar for those people who are well versed in the technical benefits of the cloud, nor how you can build N-tiered complex infrastructure with just a few mouse clicks. It is more about:

  • getting a primer on the benefits of cloud computing for your business,
  • how customers are using the GoGrid cloud to achieve success and,
  • to learn how to get started with a cloud presence on GoGrid.

Date: Thursday, October 14, 2010
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM (Pacific Time)
Registration: http://go.gogrid.com/webinars/20101014
Presenters: Michael Sheehan (GoGrid Technology Evangelist) & Maria Gallegos (GoGrid Product Marketing Manager)

Webinar: Load Balancing in the GoGrid Cloud – Utilizing F5 BIG IP to Manage Traffic Spikes & Uptime (8/25/10)

Friday, August 13th, 2010 by

We are excited to announce a joint webinar with F5 and GoGrid that discusses the top Use Cases and Best Practices for load balancing in a public cloud. When GoGrid launched several years ago, we were pleased to have F5 as a technology partner in our initial offering. It remains a core feature of the GoGrid Cloud today. Recently, with the addition of our East Coast datacenter, we released load balancing for GoGrid infrastructures in that datacenter as well.

Many current GoGrid users are not taking advantage of our free F5 load balancing so if you are one of those customers, we encourage you to attend this webinar. Things to think about:

  • You can prevent application downtime – when you have more than one server in a load balanced environment, you can rest assured that if one of those servers happens to become unavailable, traffic to your site is automatically redirected to the other available server(s).
  • Scaling infrastructure – without a load balancer in place, it can be difficult to scale up (or down) your infrastructure.
  • 1-2-3 Process – deploying a load balancer is just a matter of filling out a form and once you configure it, your new load balancer is available in minutes.
  • Moving beyond the “Free” offering – if your routing needs are more complex, we are here to help with other solutions.
