GoGrid Updates MyGSI Features: Edit, Delete & Restore & Other Changes

Thursday, September 10th, 2009 by

Yesterday an update to GoGrid was released with the following enhancements:

  • Edit, Delete & Restore MyGSI Images
  • Updated Billing Widget
  • Updated GoGrid API

On August 11, 2009, we announced the availability of GoGrid 2.0 which included the new personal server images (MyGSI) functionality. Details on that important release are found here. Using MyGSI to manage your server repository or inventory is a great way to not only speed up your workflow in terms of deploying copies of servers quickly and easily, but also save money in the process (by storing your personal server images in GoGrid Cloud Storage for just a few dollars a month).

Edit, Delete & Restore MyGSI Images

As our customers were demanding this feature (MyGSIs), we got it out to market as quickly as possible. This new release now provides you with the ability to Edit, Delete and Restore MyGSIs that are located within the Server Images tab.

Hopefully many of you are already enjoying the MyGSI feature. Here are a few things you should know about the newly pushed functionality. Within the Server Images tab, you should now see a new icon to the far right hand side of the server images that looks like a trash can:

New Version of GoGrid Released: Server Image Selection, RAM, API and Architecture Changes

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 by

Last night we release a new version of GoGrid that has a few notable changes, specifically:

  • Server Image Selection Widget
  • Smart selection of RAM allocations (and 8 GB RAM options in web GUI)
  • Updates to GoGrid API
  • Enhancements to underlying Architecture

Server Image Selection Widget

The biggest visual change in this release is to how Windows and Linux Database, Web and Applications server images are selected within the GoGrid web interface. This is essentially the framework that will be used for the upcoming MyGSI feature. Since we continue to add new images to the GoGrid image repository, and we will be enabling your own personal server images to be stored within GoGrid, we realized that the current selection process of Application & Database servers doesn’t scale very well.

Our software engineering team has come up with an elegant image selection widget that will allow you to quickly drill-down to the image type you wish. Instead of trying to articulate what the new selector looks like, here are some screenshots of what to expect.

After you click on the Add Web/Application Server Icon, you are presented with a list of all available images:

GoGrid_select_server1

You can see that the list shows the Name, Operating System (OS), Architecture type (32/64-bit), Type of server (Web/DB), Price (e.g., MS SQL, for example, shows a charge – see below) and the Date the image was Updated.

New Windows Server 2003 & 2008 Images Added to GoGrid

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009 by

Yesterday we released some new Windows Operating System images to the GoGrid Image repository. What is notable here is that GoGrid has extended our Windows Server breadth in the Cloud and we are the first to market with the ability to instantiate Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 cloud servers with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express, Standard and Workgroup editions. Also added is support for FastCGI.

With the additions of new GoGrid server templates, especially the Facebook-ready ones, we know that you will really want to understand what is contained within each image, down to the version numbers. We have made this as easy as possible to get to. When you install a Server using one of the pre-defined Operating System templates, you now have an icon that looks like an “i” next to the OS and Template selections. Clicking on that icon will launch the new GoGrid Wiki that contains useful details on GoGrid.

mediaWikilink

The GoGrid Wiki provides information around the:

  • Supported Operating Systems
  • Template Images
  • Billing Model
  • User Interface
  • Network Devices

As more functionality is added to GoGrid, this information will expand.
