InformationWeek’s “IaaS Buyer’s Guide” with some Updated Information from GoGrid

Friday, October 19th, 2012 by

This week, InformationWeek published an extremely handy IaaS Buyer’s Guide designed to help companies navigate the complex airspace of cloud computing, specifically the Infrastructure-as-a-Service marketplace. The Guide covers 9 IaaS providers, including GoGrid, that each submitted responses to a questionnaire about their service offerings. InformationWeek then compiled and categorized those responses in this easy-to-understand Guide. You can find the full Guide (behind a registration wall) here.

Topics covered in the Guide include:

  • CPU & Memory
  • Storage
  • Operating Systems
  • Database Software Needs
  • Redundancy/Data Center Needs
  • Additional VM Features
  • Cost
  • Security & Compliance
  • Support & SLA
  • Additional Services

A few things have changed since GoGrid was originally interviewed, and we wanted to provide updated information for some of these categories.

What Operating System Images and Applications do YOU want on GoGrid?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008 by

A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation with a very excited GoGrid user. So much so, that he was working on getting all of his production websites migrated over to GoGrid, but only after he fully installed cPanel. Using cPanel, he said, would enable him to seamlessly migrate all of his clients’ sites. He kept running into little tweaks that he needed to do here and there, but kept working on it, happy that he could so easily build up and rip down server instances with GoGrid. Eventually, he got it to work. His ultimate suggestion? Get an Operating System image with cPanel installed, or at a minimum, have a bare-bones install of CentOS so that cPanel could be installed easily.

As we continue to build out the GoGrid Operating System images (shortly to roll out some new ones), I thought that it would make sense to ask what Open Source software you might want to see in upcoming template releases.

My list of Open Source apps that I would want on Windows and/or Linux is growing and includes:

What about actual Operating Systems like Ubuntu or Debian?

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.

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.
