$500 Limited Time Discount on Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 in GoGrid Dedicated Servers

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010 by

At GoGrid, we are experts in “Hybrid Hosting“! What is hybrid hosting you ask? Essentially it takes the best of the physical and virtual hosting worlds and combines the two in order to provide a compelling and flexible infrastructure offering in the Cloud. If you desire the elasticity of virtual servers, being able to horizontally scale on demand, with GoGrid, you have that option with a variety of GoGrid and Partner virtual server images available. However, if you or your clients require compliance certification or you are simply accustomed to working with bare metal servers, a GoGrid physical server may be the solution you need.

If you haven’t experienced the power of Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 running on a dedicated machine, we have come up with a program to get you using them quickly. Not only can you instantiate Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 as a GoGrid Virtual Server, you NOW have the option to deploy them as GoGrid Physical Servers.

So, for a limited time, we are providing a $500 discount on dedicated servers running Windows Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008.

Getting your infrastructure into the Cloud with GoGrid has always been quick and easy. Now, with the physical/dedicated server offering that we recently added, you have the added flexibility of being able to choose the type of infrastructure you desire as well as mix virtual and physical environments, and all of it on-demand, without contracts and within the same network infrastructure.

In order to qualify for this $500 promotional credit, customers must contact a GoGrid sales representative AND mention this offer. And be sure to tell them that you read about it on the blog. You can also find more information as well as a sign-up form here.

Video Presentation: GoGrid API – “Writing Code for Many Clouds” – Cloud Connect Event 2010

Friday, March 19th, 2010 by

This week, GoGrid was not only an exhibitor and Silver Sponsor of the Cloud Connect Event 2010 in Santa Clara, CA, but also our Lead Senior Software Engineer, Justin Kitagawa, was part of a panel titled “Writing Code for Many Clouds“.

cloud_connect-4c

The panel was moderated by Shlomo Swidler (Founder, Orchestratus) and the members included:

  • Shashi Mysore, Product Specialist, Eucalyptus Systems
  • Adrian Cole, Founder, jClouds
  • George Reese, CTO, enStratus
  • Michael Mayo, Rackspace
  • Mitch Garnaat, President, CloudRight
  • Justin Kitagawa, Lead Senior Software Engineer, GoGrid
  • Sam Ramji, Vice President of Strategy, Sonoa Systems

Each panel member was allowed a few minutes to discuss how their service can be controlled programmatically via an API or other method. This is an important discussion point because many companies and developers are looking to build applications that span clouds. However prior to doing this, these developers must fully understand how a cloud is architected and can be utilized. Obviously, when building a cloud as a vendor, there are challenges and hurdles that must be overcome in the process. Each of the panelists discussed their design decisions and then answered questions presented to them by the moderator as well as by audience members.

As an attendee of this panel, I thought it important to present GoGrid’s thoughts on our own API and how we came to make the decisions behind its development. Below is a video of Justin’s presentation which covers: (more…) «Video Presentation: GoGrid API – “Writing Code for Many Clouds” – Cloud Connect Event 2010»
