Introduction to Partner Server Images

A few months ago, we introduced MyGSIs (personal server images) which allow users to create custom personal GSI (GoGrid Server Images) with all of their code, applications and data. These personal server images are then compressed and stored in GoGrid’s Cloud Storage for use later instantiating copies of those MyGSIs within a user’s GoGrid cloud. Building upon that framework, backend structure and concept, we have released Partner GSIs and the GoGrid Exchange.

A Partner GSI appears in the same list of servers or sandboxes available for deployment. GoGrid has a growing number of partners, each of which specialize in a variety of capabilities including internet security, backup, monitoring, web applications, compliance and application scaling. New partners are being added regularly so be sure to check the GoGrid Partner page for additions. Also, a new “microsite”, called the GoGrid Exchange, will be launching shortly where you can get detailed information about Partners and the images they are providing.

To use a Partner GSI, simply select it from the server list as you are creating a new GoGrid cloud server. Do note that some partners charge an additional amount for using their pre-packaged GSI. If you use a Partner GSI that has some sort of “token based billing” attached to it, you will receive a charge for the use of that server in your next billing statement. Also, even if you use a Partner GSI that has a billing token assigned to it for an hour (or more), you are charged the full amount associated with that image. There is no partial or fractional billing for Partner GSIs. Partner images will show a different “owner” (see the screenshot below).

GigaSpaces and GoGrid Launch Enterprise-Grade Cloud Computing Solution

Yesterday, GoGrid and GigaSpaces announced the launch of an enterprise-grade Cloud Computing Solution. The full press release follows:

GigaSpaces and GoGrid Launch Enterprise-Grade Cloud Computing Solution

Joint Offering Enables Java, .Net and C++ Applications to Scale On-Demand

San Francisco, CA – October 6, 2008 - GigaSpaces Technologies and GoGrid announced today the availability of the GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform (XAP), the leading scale-out application server for the cloud, on GoGrid’s enterprise-grade cloud computing service for Windows and Linux.  The two companies’ joint offering enables enterprises to migrate existing and new Java, J2EE, .Net and C++ applications to a cloud computing infrastructure with an hourly pay-per-use pricing model.

Increasingly, enterprises are looking to reduce costs and shorten time-to-market by running their applications on public cloud computing services, such as GoGrid.  However, traditional application platforms and middleware do not allow applications to truly take advantage of the cloud, as they are built for static environments.  GigaSpaces XAP addresses these challenges by allowing Java, .Net and C++ applications to grow and shrink on-demand with complete reliability and high performance.

image By building their applications with GigaSpaces and running them in the GoGrid cloud, enterprises can realize what many consider the ‘holy grail’ of IT,” said John Keagy, chief executive officer at GoGrid.  “Executives can sleep well at night knowing that if there is a spike in demand, the GigaSpaces platform will be able to scale-out on the cloud with complete fault-tolerance.  And the beauty of it is they only pay for what they use.image

“A common challenge enterprise customers face is that many of the current cloud offerings lack basic features required by large organizations.  The GoGrid cloud is particularly appealing to our enterprise customers who wish to run their applications on the cloud,” said Geva Perry, general manager of the cloud computing business unit at GigaSpaces.  “GoGrid offers SLAs, advanced security features, 24×7 support and volume discounts – all of which are must-haves for large companies.”

In addition to the robust Linux systems provided by GoGrid and the powerful Java capabilities offered by GigaSpaces, the joint solution is unique in its offering for running .Net applications on the cloud by combining GoGrid’s Windows-based cloud with GigaSpaces’ .NET API.
