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.

Quick Roundup of a few GoGrid Reviews

GoGrid is starting to get some traction around the world. Many users are seeing how “controlling the cloud” is becoming the clear way to go when choosing a cloud hosting solution.

In many cases, GoGrid actually offers a better service than many of the other cloud computing companies out there with offerings like:

  • Free F5 load balancing
  • Persistent servers
  • Linux AND Windows server images with full root or administrator access
  • Static IPs
  • Meter pricing
  • Facebook QuickStart Servers
  • Free Support

But don’t just take my word for it. Here are what others have to say:

I guess you can think of GoGrid as Web 2.0 meets cloud computing with traditional hosting thrown in for a complete solution. If you’re a Facebook developer, give it a shot, it just might save you time and money while helping you start building your user-base, today.
