Webinar: Cloud Recovery – Disaster Recovery using the GoGrid Cloud

Monday, August 24th, 2009 by

Tomorrow, strategic partner Stratonomic and GoGrid will be hosting a webinar where you can learn how you can enable the lowest cost Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions in the cloud (specifically the GoGrid cloud). Disaster Recovery is often either ignored because of high-cost concerns or the complicated nature of it. Doing it yourself can be extremely time consuming, difficult and frequently, customers don’t even know where to begin.

I particularly like how Stratonomic phrases it on their site:

(COST) EFFECTIVE FAULT TOLERANCE: Can your disaster recovery (DR) site handle all of your traffic, securely and reliably? Do you even have a DR site? Setting up and maintaining DR site in the cloud is not only extremely cheap, but it will let you sleep soundly at night. How cheap?  Save 75% in your OPEX, and over 90% in CAPEX compared to building out and hosting your own DR site. We like to call it DR on a dime.

Luckily, the Cloud offers a great solution for DR, and Stratonomic has created many various Disaster Recovery solutions within the GoGrid cloud that will fit most IT organization’s needs, all starting as low as $349 per month.

Presentation: “How To Get Started in the Cloud” GoGrid @ CloudWorld09

Friday, August 21st, 2009 by

Last week, CloudWorld09 Expo took place in San Francisco and GoGrid‘s CEO, John Keagy, did a presentation titled “How To Get Started in the Cloud” to a fully packed room in one of the sessions at the Expo.

The speaker abstract was as follows:

The Cloud Computing phenomenon is happening NOW – it’s a reality and can provide more flexibility for your web hosting – faster, easier and at a lower cost. Companies do not need to own their own server hardware or network infrastructure anymore. The ease of scaling up or out when the need arises, the speed which new web applications can be designed, prototyped, tested, and deployed, and the inherent cost savings (CapEx to OpEx) are truly attractive. Cloud Computing is not just a buzz term we are hearing more and more, but the next wave of hosting infrastructure. As the Cloud continues to gain acceptance, developers, designers, sysadmins and IT professionals need to understand the advantages, best practices and how to get started using Cloud Computing.

In this session, John Keagy, founder and CEO of GoGrid discussed:

  • What is Cloud Computing – The Cloud Pyramid
  • The Benefits of Cloud Computing & Hybrid Hosting
  • What can Cloud Computing do for me and my business
  • The Competitive Landscape & Key Differentiators
  • Cost Savings of Cloud Computing – pay only for what you need
  • How to determine when to utilize Cloud Computing
  • How should you get started using the Cloud?
  • How to identify what to put in the cloud first

The presentation is available below as well as on SlideShare.
