Video: Understanding GoGrid’s November 2009 Product Release

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 by

Last week, I published the November 2009 GoGrid Customer Update newsletter on the GoGrid blog. In it, I highlighted the important changes that were included in the recent deployment of GoGrid, including our new GoGrid CDN, the GoGrid Exchange, new RAM Hour & Bandwidth plans, new Windows Server base images and some other items.

To follow up with that newsletter, which was sent to GoGrid customers by Mario Olivarez (VP of Products), I thought that it would be useful for those interested in GoGrid to learn a bit more. So, I spent a few minutes interviewing Mario about these recent changes and what they mean to our customers.

This video is also available on the GoGrid Facebook page as well as our GoGrid YouTube Channel.

If you have any questions about what you heard or saw on the video or GoGrid in general, please leave a comment on this post or ask us on Twitter (@GoGrid). Stay tuned for more updates and videos coming your way.

Newsletter: GoGrid Customer Update – October 2009

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009 by

The GoGrid newsletter went out today. Unfortunately, if you are not already a GoGrid customer, you didn’t receive it…until now! There are a lot of exciting items covered here (a few of which you already know if you subscribe to this blog’s RSS feed including the Edit, Delete and Restore function of MyGSIs). If you aren’t already a GoGrid user, I recommend that you sign up (and here is a quick hint, if you want a $100 GoGrid credit on new account, contact a GoGrid Sales Rep and they can consult with you on your best options for the Cloud).

Google News Noticed that GoGrid was Out of Beta, Hope You Did Too!

Thursday, August 27th, 2009 by

Last week we at GoGrid officially announced that we had removed the Beta label from our core product. I was excited to receive a screenshot from an acquaintance showing how this announcement made the front page of Google News.

I hope that you have spent some time reviewing some of the new and updated features that were part of the GoGrid 2.0 announcement as well as the Out of Beta announcement including private server images (known as MyGSIs), 99.99% Uptime since the beginning of Q2 2009, and improved server deployment times, to name a few.

If you are already a regular GoGrid user, I would love to hear what you think about the MyGSI feature. Leave me a comment on this post, or send a Tweet to @GoGrid, @HighTechDad or @PaulLancaster. If you are new to GoGrid or Cloud Computing, I recommend that you contact one of the GoGrid Sales Specialists who can help further explain many of the standard and new features of the GoGrid Cloud. (Here’s a hint, the Specialists can give you a free trial for a new account on GoGrid with no risk involved! Just contact them via a Call, Email or Live Chat.)

Keep spreading the word about GoGrid and become a Fan of us on Facebook (use the new widget located on the GoGrid blog)!

New Feature: Job History – A Log File for GoGrid

Friday, April 10th, 2009 by

Many GoGrid users may have noticed a new tab that has appeared within the GoGrid Web Interface. The new "Jobs" tab is a great new addition for those who want details on any action or activity that has taken place on an object (e.g., Server, Load Balancer, Cloud Storage) within their GoGrid account.

jobs_tab_highlight

Think of this new section as your GoGrid log file. It keeps track of actions that you have made on objects in your account, broken down chronologically. In fact, since we have been keeping an internal log for some time, many of your older activities prior to the release of this feature will show up in your log. Also, if you use the GoGrid API, any requests made through the API show up in the Job section as well.

GoGrid actions that are currently tracked are:

  • Add Server
  • Delete Server
  • Restart Server
  • Add Load Balancer
  • Delete Load Balancer
  • Add Cloud Storage

All actions are also logged with the following information:

  • Date & Time (UTC timestamp – a good time converter can be found here)
  • Action Details
  • Action Status
  • User that requested the action
