Cloud Computing Provider, GoGrid, Now Offers Windows Server 2008 in the Cloud


San Francisco, CA (Vocus) August 19, 2008

San Francisco, CA, August 19th 2008 — GoGrid (http://www.GoGrid.com ), the leading service provider of Windows and Linux cloud-based server hosting, announced today the immediate availability of 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008 within its Cloud Computing infrastructure. Parent company ServePath is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, and launched Windows Server 2008 dedicated hosting in February of this year.

With this release, GoGrid becomes one of the first Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers to offer Windows Server 2008 “in the cloud.” The new Windows Server 2008 operating system from Microsoft sets new benchmarks for server stability, manageability, and security; therefore, interest from Windows Server customers wanting to try it out has been high. GoGrid customers can now deploy Windows Server 2008 servers in just a few minutes for as little as 19 cents an hour, with no commitment.

GoGrid is the Cloud Computing service that enables system administrators to quickly and easily create, deploy, load-balance and manage Windows and Linux cloud servers within minutes. 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 and flexible network infrastructures, which include load balancing and multiple web and database servers, all set up with icons through the GUI.

Initial Windows Server 2008 offerings on GoGrid include both 32-bit and 64-bit preconfigured templates. GoGrid users select the desired operating system and then choose preconfigured templates in order to minimize time to deploy. Pre-configurations include:

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.

GoGrid and AppZero Partner to Ease Movement of Windows Server Applications to the Cloud

San Francisco, CA (Vocus) May 19, 2009

GoGrid, the Cloud Computing Division of ServePath, LLC, and AppZero, pioneer of server application virtualization today announced a technology partnership to make it easy for enterprises and independent software vendors (ISVs) to move their server-based Windows applications from the datacenter to the GoGrid cloud. The GoGrid and AppZero solution allows enterprises to instantly provision complex server-based applications to use the GoGrid cloud as a cost-effective approach for running applications. Many enterprises utilize cloud computing for provisioning and running development environments, as well as for low utilization applications and business continuity fail-over most often in a hybrid (cloud/datacenter) model for spiky or burst- oriented applications. AppZero’s application mobility technology allows IT organizations and ISVs to move Windows server applications to the cloud risk-free and without violating Windows licensing requirements.

AppZero is first to market with technology that packages server applications as Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs) which are pre-installed, preconfigured applications that contain zero operating system components. AppZero is the only tool available for decoupling server-side applications from operating systems. The VAA approach permits applications to be easily moved between datacenter and cloud infrastructures and back, minimizing cloud lock-in.

GoGrid, the largest Windows server cloud hosting provider, is the pioneer of “cloudcenters,” an approach to cloud infrastructure based on traditional datacenters and their use of familiar components such as virtualized servers, network storage and hardware firewalls. GoGrid is a leading cloud provider with the flexibility to choose between Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003.

GoGrid and AppZero will host a free webinar, “Moving Windows Server Applications to the Cloud in Three Easy Steps,” May 28th at 2 p.m. EST. To register, visit: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/481983162.” Interested users can also download a coupon good for $ 100 on the GoGrid cloud.

According to Paul Lancaster, Business Development Manager at GoGrid, “AppZero’s technology simplifies the packaging of applications running on our cloud servers and replicates them in a way that is painless. This approach takes a lot of the costs out of provisioning applications, whether on a physical or virtual server, in the datacenter or on an internal or external cloud. We think the combination of AppZero and GoGrid will be of interest to our heavier cloud computing users. Because these users tend to use a hybrid model, they need an easy way to provision applications between internal and public clouds. This combination will also appeal to enterprises that want to get started on the GoGrid cloud in a way that’s easy to use, without a lot of administration.”

Greg O’Connor, President and CEO of AppZero, adds “GoGrid is carving out a growing reputation for its ease of use in enabling customers to use familiar datacenter approaches and tools to quickly set up a cloud infrastructure — adding and deleting servers as the business requires. AppZero is a natural fit in this environment, permitting server applications to run without modification on any cloud. We make it easy for enterprises to take advantage of GoGrid’s scalable resources on a pay-per-use basis, without cloud lock-in.”

AppZero software creates, runs, and maintains VAAs in Linux, Solaris, and Windows environments. GoGrid customers can drag and drop AppZero VAAs from one cloud server to another, as well as from cloud to datacenter and back.

AppZero, charter partner in the AWS Solution Provider Program, facilitates movement of Windows server-side applications to Amazon’s EC2

Andover, MA (PRWEB) October 12, 2009 – AppZero, pioneer in server-

side application virtualization was recognized as a charter partner in Amazon’s (AMZN) newly launched AWS Solution Provider Program. AppZero and some select providers of innovative technology and services were joined on this inaugural list by established industry leaders such as CA, Citrix, IBM and Oracle.

AppZero contributes to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) ecosystem through fast and frictionless provisioning of complex Windows server applications to Amazon’s EC2. First to market with technology that packages server applications as Virtual Application Appliances (VAAs) — pre-installed, preconfigured applications that contain zero operating system components — AppZero is the only tool available for decoupling server-side applications from operating systems. This VAA approach permits applications to be easily moved between datacenter and cloud infrastructures and back, without cloud lock-in.

The blend of AppZero’s risk-free application mobility with Amazon’s industry-defining economics encourages enterprise-scale customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to accelerate movement to the cloud. Because AppZero makes no change to the application, server applications can freely move from the datacenter to EC2 and back in any combinations of usage that make operational and economic sense.

Many enterprises turn to EC2 for highly elastic development and test environments, business continuity and fail-over, as well as for low utilization or bursty, seasonal applications – most commonly in a hybrid model that strategically blends cloud and datacenter. ISVs increasingly provision their proof-of-concept (POC) work to the cloud for instantaneous deployment to customer sites. AppZero facilitates multi-directional application movement, removing labor, cost, and concerns about lock-in.

Greg O’Connor, CEO of AppZero notes, “Amazon clearly recognizes the importance of building an ecosystem of first-rate partners who offer solutions and services to maximize use of AWS products. AppZero’s ground-breaking technology speeds and eases movement of server applications to the cloud – Amazon included. I see being selected as a charter AWS solution provider as validation by a business visionary and technology master. And it’s a very public opportunity to be known by the company we keep.”

AppZero software creates, runs, and maintains VAAs in Linux, Solaris, and Windows environments. Customers can drag and drop AppZero VAAs from one cloud server to another, as well as from cloud to datacenter and back.

PC Users Urged to Upgrade to Windows 8.1 for Improved Security


Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 08, 2014

eMazzanti Technologies CEO, Carl Mazzanti, urged Windows users to upgrade to Windows 8 to counter increasing security threats as he discussed From Windows XP to Windows 8.1: Changes, Differences, Trends on the popular blogtalkradio program VMB, The Voice of Manhattan Business, sponsored by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.

The rocket ship growth of malware and spyware runs across all platforms, stated Mazzanti. Users should upgrade to Windows 8.1 to increase security and counter the threats. Each new version of Windows has a much smaller threat landscape, with Windows 8 having one tenth the attack surface vs. Windows XP.

In the informative interview, Mazzanti also summarized the progression and issues of each of the Windows versions from Windows 2000 to Windows 7, whats different in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, and the expected release of Windows 9, spring of 2015.

In discussing the benefits of Windows 8/8.1, Mazzanti mentioned improved performance as evidenced by faster boot times, and shared insights about the Tiles, a major user interface change from Windows 7.

The tiles are much more than links to directories, explained Mazzanti. They are a phenomenal way of pulling in active data you might be interested in on multiple platforms without having to launch individual apps.

The program concluded with a brief discussion of what to expect in Windows 9 and beyond. Mazzanti said he hopes to see file storage synced across all devices, a sexier user interface and faster setup on any new device, with automatic transfer of settings and apps.

Customer feedback is insanely important to Microsoft, stated Mazzanti. With so much input, we are excited about whats coming in future releases of Windows, particularly the user experience.

The timely 45 minute program aired at noon, May 7, 2014. However, eMazzanti encourages everyone to access the complete recorded interview.
