Google News Noticed that GoGrid was Out of Beta, Hope You Did Too!

Thursday, August 27th, 2009 by

Last week we at GoGrid officially announced that we had removed the Beta label from our core product. I was excited to receive a screenshot from an acquaintance showing how this announcement made the front page of Google News.

I hope that you have spent some time reviewing some of the new and updated features that were part of the GoGrid 2.0 announcement as well as the Out of Beta announcement including private server images (known as MyGSIs), 99.99% Uptime since the beginning of Q2 2009, and improved server deployment times, to name a few.

If you are already a regular GoGrid user, I would love to hear what you think about the MyGSI feature. Leave me a comment on this post, or send a Tweet to @GoGrid, @HighTechDad or @PaulLancaster. If you are new to GoGrid or Cloud Computing, I recommend that you contact one of the GoGrid Sales Specialists who can help further explain many of the standard and new features of the GoGrid Cloud. (Here’s a hint, the Specialists can give you a free trial for a new account on GoGrid with no risk involved! Just contact them via a Call, Email or Live Chat.)

Keep spreading the word about GoGrid and become a Fan of us on Facebook (use the new widget located on the GoGrid blog)!

Press Round-up Covering GoGrid API Launch

Friday, July 18th, 2008 by

Yesterday we officially launched the new GoGrid API and I wanted to pass on a few notable mentions that recently appeared in the blogosphere. This release was a fairly significant event for us as well as for users of Cloud Computing because for the first time, users now have a choice of using either a slick and intuitive web-based interface or an Application Programming Interface (API), depending on their needs.

Technology writer, Mark Gibbs, who has been closely following GoGrid’s progress over the past few months writes:

“The GoGrid API is remarkable because of its depth – through a REST-style interface it provides access to everything that the GoGrid platform can do including configuring components, starting and stopping services, and retrieving status information as well as real time usage and billing data. “

He continues by discussing some possible options for hooking the GoGrid API into a Microsoft Visio COM object or C# to use Visio to diagram and control the service architecture. He extends this idea to incorporate the use of Business Objects’ Xcelsius to potentially create comprehensive GoGrid dashboards.
