Details on the Recent Upgrades to GoGrid: East Coast Load Balancers, New Dedicated Server Images & 16 GB RAM Images

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 by

Right on the heels of the GoGrid 3.0 release, we needed to be sure that we didn’t slow our momentum down. To that end, this week we have released some new features to GoGrid which are important to highlight.

We have 3 exciting features, specifically:

  • East Coast Load Balancers
  • New GoGrid Dedicated Server Images
  • 16 GB RAM on GoGrid Cloud Servers

East Coast Load Balancers

As we work towards obtaining full feature parity within a few months in our East Coast Datacenter launch, one of the first items that we enabled was that of Load Balancing. Just like in the West Coast Datacenter, Load Balancing on the East Coast remains FREE. With the rollout of Load Balancers in the East Coast, all GoGrid users now have the ability to deploy 6 total Load Balancers for free, 3 in each Datacenter.

Estimate Your GoGrid Hosting Costs with the New GoGrid Pricing Calculator

Monday, July 26th, 2010 by

With the launch of the new GoGrid website and GoGrid 3.0, we also spent some time on a new calculator to help you estimate your costs of running your infrastructure on GoGrid. The calculator, just like GoGrid, is extremely easy to use and can definitely help you plan out your infrastructure in the GoGrid cloud.

Features of the calculator include:

  • The ability to add numerous configurations of Cloud Servers (RAM/Hours Deployed/# of servers with that configuration)
  • Add Load Balancing
  • Add Cloud Storage
  • Configure Inbound and Outbound monthly transfer
  • Plan recommendations based on your configuration
  • Estimated total monthly cost

So, for example, below is the following configuration:

  • 2 – 2GB servers running for 30 days (720 hours)
  • 2 – 4GB servers running for 30 days (720 hours)
  • Load balancer –> it’s FREE
  • 24 GB of Cloud Storage –> first 10 GBs are free so the charge is for 14 GB/Month @ $0.15/GB/mo
  • 20 GB/mo Outbound Data Transfer ($0.29/GB/mo)
  • Inbound data transfer –> it’s FREE
