GoGrid Announces SAS 70 Type II Report Validating Quality of GoGrid Portal Controlled Cloud Servers


San Francisco, CA (Vocus) August 5, 2008

GoGrid achieves another first with SAS 70 Type II Report from independent auditors who exhaustively inquired and physically inspected infrastructure, operations, processes and plans that GoGrid has in place. The SAS 70 Type II Report is the internationally recognized auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). The GoGrid audit was performed by a reputable public accounting firm that is an AICPA member. The SAS 70 Type II procedure results in an independent report on the design and control of GoGrid’s business processes.

GoGrid was first to the Cloud Computing server market with a unique web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI), Windows and Linux cloud servers, free f5 hardware load balancing, free 24×7 support, and an API.

Today, GoGrid announces another first: audited business processes and infrastructure conforming to international standards that confirms GoGrid’s quality, reliability and value.

GoGrid’s validated backoffice systems enable both hourly and monthly pricing and efficient variable unit pricing on RAM and bandwidth consistently delivering the most cost-effective solution. GoGrid’s icon-controlled business system delivers Linux and Windows servers that are “instant on” and scalable in seconds.

John Keagy, CEO and co-founder of GoGrid, states: “GoGrid is all about offering ‘Control in the Cloud.’ Whether our customers are developers using GoGrid for 90 minutes to test something or young companies avoiding capital expenditures with GoGrid multi-server networks in the cloud, all are reassured that their data and processes are securely and reliably hosted.”

Keagy went on to suggest that “GoGrid now certifiably deliverscontrol AND quality in the cloud.”

The SAS 70 Type II report validates that GoGrid’s description of certain relevant controls over information technology related to its San Francisco data center and virtual server hosting is fairly presented and that such controls have been suitably designed to achieve their specified control objectives. The favorable SAS 70 Type II report covers GoGrid as well as its parent company ServePath.

GoGrid believes that its award-winning GoGrid instant cloud server product may be the first ever GUI-controlled cloud computing solution with SAS 70 Type II certification. This validates flexible, scalable, instant GoGrid cloud servers as ready for mainstream server applications.

The GoGrid management controls audited in this report are broader in scope than many other virtualization providers. In addition to the physical security measures covered in a typical data facility, this report covers information security, incident management, network performance, data back-up, disaster recovery, redundancy, environmental security, change control, risk assessment processes, communications, monitoring of network, databases, systems, bandwidth utilization as well as Terms of Service and Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

About GoGrid:

GoGrid is the new Cloud Computing hosted internet service that delivers true “Control in the Cloud.” GoGrid enables system administrators, developers and IT professionals to create, deploy, and control load balanced cloud servers and complex server networks with full root access and administrative server control in minutes via a unique web control panel or API.
