GoGrid Cloud Hosting Key Features

Multi-Data Center Provisioning

  • Provision distributed infrastructure to host applications that need to be located near end-users.
  • Disaster Recovery: run your production environment in your data center and set up a disaster recovery site in a GoGrid data center of your choice. Quickly provision infrastructure if/when your production site is down for maintenance.
  • Fail Over: host your production and fail over infrastructure in GoGrid data centers.
  • Host infrastructure close to your customer base or corporate headquarters.

Custom Cloud Server Images

  • Horizontal server scaling: use a GSI to rapidly deploy new servers to meet sudden spikes in demand. Delete the servers when demand drops and pay only for the resources used.
  • Vertical server scaling: scale RAM by deploying a GSI to a new server with a higher RAM allotment and then deleting the old server with insufficient RAM.
  • Server parking: bundle and park a server in GoGrid’s Cloud Storage for only $0.15 (about $3.00/month). This is ideal for users that don’t want to pay for an entire month of service for a server used only a few days per month.

  • Dynamically delete servers.
  • Retrieve account and billing summary in real-time.
