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:

Learn How a GoGrid Customer Created a Multiple Data Center Routing & Failover Infrastructure Environment

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 by

We absolutely LOVE hearing how GoGrid customers are using our cloud solutions to create unique “cloud fingerprints” and environments using the features and data centers of GoGrid. Paul Trippett just published a very interesting write-up of an infrastructure environment that addresses many of the common concerns facing any company looking to provide a highly-redundant infrastructure while also ensuring a solid Service Level Agreement (SLA) for their customers.

You can find Paul’s original write-up titled “Utilizing GoGrid’s Multiple Data Centers for Routing and Failover” on his site. With his permission, we have reposted the article so that others can learn, mimic and build upon his unique scenario.

At the beginning of the year one of our customers asked us if we can provide an SLA for StormRETS and with it, the sound gritting teeth suddenly echoed around the room. As you can imagine, this caused more questions than which we actually had answers for:

blockquote_2 What kind of SLA did we want to provide and what could we realistically provide?

Our hosting provider, at the time, had an SLA which entailed “We don’t give any guarantee that your servers will be available, but if for any reason they are unavailable we will get the back up and running as soon as we can.”, erm, how on earth can we build a SLA based on that. It was decided at this time we would migrate our servers to another hosting provider, one at least with a SLA we can build on and a company we can actually contact directly should a problem arise.
