IT professionals engaged in cloud computing are beginning to realize that they have a wealth of security options at their fingertips, it's just a matter of choosing the appropriate solution.

San Francisco, Calif. - November 20, 2012 - GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the Challengers quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"(IaaS) report. The cloud IaaS market is expected to grow significantly over the next 4 years, gaining almost 50% by the end of 2012 compared with last year, according to a recent Gartner report.

San Francisco, Calif. - November 8, 2012 - GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced it is partnering with hack/reduce, a Cambridge, Massachusetts–based collaboration focused on Big Data technologies. GoGrid will provide hack/reduce members Big Data solutions that match requirements for running Hadoop, thereby streamlining application development.

GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced a technology partnership with GenieDB, a company developing a globally distributed database for enterprise applications, to let companies beta-test the GenieDB Global Delivery Database solution within a multi-data-center cloud infrastructure environment.

GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company and IBM (NYSE: IBM) Business Partner, today announced that GoGrid Server Images with IBM's BigInsightsTM and StreamsTM are now available to solve the Big Data requirements of independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs).


Forrester Research projected that by 2020, the cloud computing business will be worth $241 billion dollars! There are at least 25 cloud vendors who are brawling for the big chunk of the market share, that SaaS and the cloud has created, and which continues to grow tremendously. GoGrid offers their customers a secure and scalable platform where they can easily move and manage their applications and work projects.

While many commodity cloud providers price their cloud services at very low on-demand rates, GoGrid offers the best value for money by providing enterprise class services at close-to-commodity prices. GoGrid started off as a commodity cloud provider but is soon emerging as a strong competitor among enterprise cloud providers.

Users have different reasons and preferences for deciding between shared and dedicated resources in the cloud. But most shouldn't be making those decisions based on the infrastructure, but based on the application that they're trying to run, according to executives from GoGrid, Nimbula and Softlayer at GigaOM's Structure conference on Thursday.

Leading cloud infrastructure leader GoGrid had some news to spread at Cloud Expo East 2011 last week, including the fact that Compuware (News - Alert) Corporation is using its cloud infrastructure to run the industry's first free IPv6 Website Performance Comparison Test. At the Cloud Computing Expo, GoGrid was not only spreading the word about its IPv6 infrastructure, but Executive Chairman and Founder John Keagy was also holding a session on the economics of cloud computing. Keagy told TMCnet at Cloud Expo that his session explored what drives the economics of the cloud and what people assume drives the cloud that does not.

Compuware, a provider of application performance management (APM) software, is offering a free IPv6 Web site Performance Comparison Test... Compuware will be running the performance test on the cloud infrastructure-as-a-service network of GoGrid. The company provisions blocks of IP addresses on its IaaS platform for interoperability with IPv6, said Mark Worsey, chief information officer of GoGrid.

Earlier this week, cloud provider GoGrid announced that founder and original CEO John Keagy is leaving that post and transitioning into a new role, a decision Keagy told me Friday morning is the result of the company growing too quickly. Keagy, now executive chairman, will now focus on the latter two responsibilities - leaving the day-to-day management to new CEO Warren Heffelfinger.

IT shops interested in moving workloads to the cloud should check out the performance rankings of cloud providers by CloudSleuth, a cloud monitoring service owned by Compuware Inc. Google App Engine came in first, followed by Microsoft Azure, then GoGrid. The rankings measures the response time to a test application that all providers in the study agreed to run in their cloud. The tests are run from 125 end-user U.S. locations in all 50 states and from 75 international locations in 30 countries and are conducted every 15 minutes.

GoGrid CEO John Keagy wrote on his blog Thursday that when it comes to cloud computing, there are a couple of things that have been overrated in the industry, like cheap hydroelectric power and massive-scale data centers. What Keagy says does matter for making cloud computing financially compelling to both providers and users are things like pay-per-use pricing, automation, shared platforms and commodity hardware.

GoGrid is among the first true public cloud providers, and now offers a variety of cloud hosting option out of multiple global data centers ... the company has been quietly leading cloud innovation for years.

GoGrid is attempting to simplify cloud licensing for its independent software vendor (ISV) partners via a system called Image Rights Management ... The IRM just takes this a step further by helping ISV partners monitor unauthorized use in IaaS environments.
