Cloud Server Hosting Provider, GoGrid, States Windows is its Preferred Cloud Operating System Compared to Linux

San Francisco, CA (Vocus) October 13, 2008

Cloud Server Hosting provider, GoGrid, which has been providing Windows 2003 Servers in the Cloud since March 2008, confirms strong demand for Windows in the Cloud. Windows Cloud Servers accounts for approximately two-thirds of all Cloud servers deployed by customers within the GoGrid infrastructure.

GoGrid Windows Cloud Servers saw enthusiastic adoption since the initial launch of GoGrid in March with Windows Server 2003. In mid-August 2008, GoGrid was first to market with Windows Server 2008 in the Cloud. GoGrid parent company, ServePath, is a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner and SAS70 Type II certified which includes the GoGrid products as well.

GoGrid will be exhibiting at the upcoming Microsoft Professional Developers Conference 2008 (PDC) where it will announce exciting developments and features specifically targeted towards Windows developers. The PDC is Microsoft’s premier gathering of leading-edge developers and architects and is the event to learn about the future of the Microsoft platform, exchange ideas with fellow professionals and hear about upcoming Microsoft Server related products.

GoGrid provides Cloud Hosting solutions for Windows developers and partners with a wide variety of Windows 2003/2008 Cloud Servers. On GoGrid, Windows Servers can be instantly provisioned with options that include:

32 and 64-bit Windows Server 2008
32-bit Windows Server 2003
IIS 6.0 & 7.0
ASP.NET
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express, Workgroup and Standard Editions

“The demand for providing Windows in the Cloud is incredible” says GoGrid CEO, John Keagy, adding “Back in March, 2008, it was critical for us to launch a complete Cloud infrastructure in order to capitalize on that tremendous Windows demand. GoGrid is currently the only Cloud Infrastructure Provider offering a complete Windows environment in the Cloud.”

Keagy’s statements have been echoed by Paul Sterling, 2008/2009 Umbraco MVP and principal of Motus Connect who was searching for a Cloud provider to support Umbraco, a Windows-only Content Management System (CMS) based on Microsoft’s ASP.NET.

“We’re thrilled with the ‘you can do this now’ state of Umbraco on GoGrid” said Sterling, evangelist for Umbraco as a platform. “We looked at all the offerings and found that only GoGrid provides the flexibility to run the Umbraco web services on IIS/Windows and the Umbraco database on mySQL/Linux.”

Because Windows users and developers frequently leverage the rich Windows user interface, GoGrid web-based portal provides the familiar and easy-to-use environment that Windows users are accustomed to. The GoGrid Graphical User Interface (GUI) and iconography allows for “point and click” deployment of complex, instant and flexible network infrastructures, which includes free load balancing and multiple web and database servers, and, coming soon: Cloud Storage. Of particular interest to Microsoft partners is GoGrid’s public Application Programming Interface (API) which developers and partners utilize to programmatically control their GoGrid infrastructure and that of their clients.

Cartika Adopts Ksplice Uptrack ‘Rebootless’ Technology as Value Added Service for All Cartika Linux Hosting Customers


Toronto, Canada and Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

Cartika Inc., a leading provider of Web hosting services, announced it has adopted Ksplice Uptrack’s “rebootless” and automated Linux update technology, bringing its customers a new class of best-of-breed dedicated and virtual server offerings.

Starting this month, Ksplice Uptrack will be included with every one of Cartika’s dedicated and virtual servers at no additional cost. “Adopting Ksplice was an easy decision,” said Andrew Rouchotas, CEO of Cartika. “We’re able to save on the high costs of updating, patching and keeping servers secure, while our customers are getting top-notch security without compromising uptime,” he said.

“Ksplice Uptrack revolutionizes server availability and security,” said Waseem Daher, Ksplice’s chief operating officer. “We’re thrilled to support Cartika’s dedication to its Linux hosting customers.” Ksplice’s technology allows IT administrators to keep Linux servers up-to-date and secure without the disruption and downtime of rebooting.

In 2009, major Linux vendors asked their customers to install a kernel update more than once per month. Before Uptrack, each occasion required an administrator to schedule downtime to apply the update. Until a system can be updated, it remains vulnerable to security flaws. By seamlessly and automatically installing kernel updates, Uptrack dramatically reduces the overhead of system administration, dramatically boosting uptime and security.

About Ksplice: Ksplice is an enterprise software company making

reboots a thing of the past. Organizations use Ksplice Uptrack, the

companys first product, to make their Linux systems more secure,
