Cloud Computing Product Announcement Bingo Game

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008 by

gogrid_cloud_product_bingo_2_thumb Whenever a Cloud provider makes a press release or schedules a press event, there is always plenty of speculation about the details being announced. I thought I would offer a different way to analyze what is being said, put it all in perspective and have a little fun in the process. I have put together a list of GoGrid Cloud Computing phrases, features and services in the form of a GoGrid Cloud Product Bingo card. As you read or listen to an announcement, listen for the keywords and try to complete a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally. For those of you who are truly ambitious, try playing Bingo Blackout and fill all of the squares on the card.

You can download the GoGrid Cloud Product Bingo card here.

All fun and games aside, we at GoGrid are firmly committed to providing the most robust and complete Cloud Infrastructure around.

For those of you who have already signed up for a Trial or Paid GoGrid account, WELCOME! For those who have not, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? As many of you have already started using GoGrid for a variety of purposes, I felt that it might make some sense to provide some more information and clarification about your new service.

As always, please feel free to contact us should we need to clarify anything, to simply suggest some new or improved feature or to just RAVE about GoGrid in general.

For starters, I definitely recommend reading through the FAQ section of the GoGrid site as there are some answers to your questions there. You can get information on:

  • How to access and update your account
  • Change your billing information
  • Learn about the fundamentals of administering your account and servers
  • …And much more!

However, if you are like me, frequently you pass over all of the “Welcome” emails that you receive when you sign up for things. So, for those of you who have GoGrid accounts, here is a refresher; for those of you who do not, here is what you are missing.
