GoGrid had been nominated for Best Virtualization Solution and was pleasantly surprised to receive the Best of Show honor. The LinuxWorld Conference and Expo took place August 4th through August 7th, 2008 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

ServePath, the parent company behind the GoGrid service, won the Product Excellence Award at LinuxWorld 2007 for best Grid Computing Solution last year. Capitalizing on this experience and honor, ServePath’s new flagship Cloud Computing offering, GoGrid, continues to secure its strong position within the Cloud Hosting industry with this new Product Excellence Award.

GoGrid is the Cloud Computing service that enables system administrator users to quickly and easily create, deploy, load balance and manage Linux and Windows cloud servers within seconds. GoGrid offers true “Control in the Cloud” with its unique web-based, Graphical User Interface (GUI) which allows for “point and click” deployment of complex network infrastructures which may include load balancing and multiple web and database servers, all set up with icons through the graphical user interface.

System Administrators and Developers enjoy GoGrid’s REST-like Application Programming Interface (API), which allows for programmatic control of the entire GoGrid infrastructure using clearly documented commands. The GoGrid API provides the ability to create interactive GoGrid management applications and enables the scripting and chaining of various GoGrid commands for automation.

“GoGrid is the future of server delivery,” said ServePath CEO John Keagy. “This award is terrific third party validation of the smart, hard work that our development and product teams have put in over the last three years.” Keagy went on to say: “Without revealing any secrets, I can assure you that GoGrid will continue to get better and persuade more people to give up their hardware dependent ways of serving data. We continue to add to the GoGrid library of operating systems, server images and applications like Apache, IIS and mySQL. Furthermore our commitment to Linux and Open Source solutions is strong.”

GoGrid was an exhibitor at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2008 and demoed the award-winning product in booth #900.

Techie.com Kicks Off Trade Show Series for Emerging Tech with ESCape to the Midwest

South Bend, IN (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Techie.com, an online magazine and destination for emerging technology and disruptive trends, announced today the first of a series of exhibitions designed to highlight some of the most exciting high-tech entrepreneurial ventures coming from throughout the Midwest.

The first-of-its-kind emerging technology trade show and conference recognizes that much of the technology that will be shaping the world in the next decade will be coming from unexpected places outside the mainstream tech centers. The trend was first highlighted in techie.com’s “Ten most unexpected tech hubs” list published in April 2013.

The next wave of innovation is coming from the Midwest,” said techie.com editor-in-chief Dan Blacharski. The Internet and more recently cloud based computing has had a democratizing effect on the startup community, barriers to entry have been lowered, and innovators from cities like South Bend, Detroit, Chattanooga, and Des Moines are taking the baton from Silicon Valley in bringing about what we’ve termed the ‘dot cloud boom.’ We are at the beginning of a major techno-social revolution, which is changing how businesses operate, how people play, and even changing the very definition of what a company and a job really is. The companies, speakers, and special events at ESCape to the Midwest are the movers and shakers that are already making this shift happen.

The event, which will be held in South Bend on Saturday, October 26, will feature up to 100 exhibitors; a meet-a-thon for getting face-to-face time with VCs, business accelerators, and key enablers; a pitch-off to let promising tech startups from the area present their ideas to the crowd for immediate feedback; and an Idea to Revenue presentation that culminates SaaS Makers PaaS Challenge competition. PaaS Challenge is designed to encourage users to take advantage of SaaS Makers powerful platform-as-a-service, which gives entrepreneurs all the tools they need to create, deploy, and sell their as-a-service apps.

Also featured at the event is the World Accelerator/Techie.com One Word Domain competition. World Accelerator, a business incubator with a unique value, offers its portfolio companies seed funding, mentorship, and connections, as well as access to one of their highly brandable, one-word domains, including alumni.com, diploma.com, or fashionstore.com.
