“Cloud Connect” is Sooo 2008 – Our Next Generation Hybrid Solution is Available on Both West & East Coast Data Centers

Friday, January 14th, 2011 by

There has been plenty of news recently how other cloud providers are stepping into the realm of providing connectivity between cloud and dedicated environments, and the buzz out there is that this is a feature that customers want. Well, we should know. At GoGrid, we initially launched this capability back in November of 2008 under the name “Cloud Connect”. Over the past few months, other providers have launched similarly named services that do exactly that, cross-connect these two types of environments via a physical connection. But GoGrid is well beyond this initial stage.

In February 2010, GoGrid released our unified vision for supporting Hybrid environments with the addition of GoGrid Dedicated Servers within the GoGrid Cloud. We realized through customer feedback and based on our 10 years of infrastructure service delivery that this would be a powerful and important feature that would help businesses craft custom infrastructure topologies that met their business requirements. No need to try to fit a round peg in a square hole – we believe that providing our customers a choice of pure cloud, pure dedicated or hybrid infrastructure on demand was something that they wanted. And we were correct.

But it’s not about what WE think, it’s about what our customers want. And given that the rest of the marketplace is jumping on the bandwagon now simply re-affirms what we pioneered.

And it is not a question of IF or WHEN we will offer the functionality because we already do and have for some time now, but rather HOW you will use it to create the IT environment that best fits your needs.

On Wednesday, January 12, 2011, we released the following Press Release that discusses not only our Hybrid solution, but also provides a quick roadmap of our innovation within this important feature:

This month’s newsletter has information about this important feature and a whole lot more, so for those of you who are not currently receiving the GoGrid newsletter, the full content is below.

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“.

webinar_GoGrid_logo_sm

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
