GoGrid and ServePath Unveil “Cloud Connect” for Enabling Hybrid Dedicated and Cloud Hosted Server Network Infrastructures


San Francisco, CA (Vocus) November 19, 2008

Today ServePath, the leading Silicon Valley Managed Hosting Provider, and GoGrid, the largest Windows Server 2003/2008 and Linux Cloud Computing Infrastructure provider, released “Cloud Connect” which enables high-speed, private network connectivity between ServePath high-end dedicated servers and GoGrid Windows or Linux Cloud servers. Also, known as “cross connects,” the new “Cloud Connect” service allows for customers to retain high-end and robust dedicated servers and all managed services, while receiving elasticity, ease and scalability benefits of GoGrid Cloud Web and Application servers.

Cloud Connect bridges the gap between traditional hosting and cloud hosting. It is the hybrid solution that delivers best practices and benefits of both cloud and dedicated hosted architectures from a single vendor. There is a modest security setup fee and no monthly fee charged for “Cloud Connect.” All that is required is a ServePath Managed Hosting account and a GoGrid Cloud Server account.

Cloud Connect uses secure gigabit private networks to connect elastic cloud servers with custom-built dedicated servers to create hosted server networks that scale to meet seasonal or other spikes of internet traffic while providing the high I/O and CPU performance that large, fast database servers require. The gigabit private networks, the cloud and the dedicated servers are all located in the same data center with hard-wired connections between them ensuring high performance and a complete turnkey service.

“We view Cloud Connect as a Best-of-Class solution for customers looking to capitalize on tried-and-true dedicated environments in harmony with dynamic and elastic web environments of Cloud Computing,” said John Keagy, CEO of ServePath and GoGrid. “Cloud Connect represents a fundamental change to how dedicated and cloud environments can be managed and used together seamlessly.”

Some infrastructure examples of Cloud Connect network configurations include:
