GoGrid Expands Hybrid Cloud Service to East Coast Data Center

📅 - Enables hybrid topologies within same cloud infrastructure environments.

GoGrid, a cloud infrastructure and hybrid hosting provider, today announced that it has expanded its 2nd Generation Hybrid Cloud capabilities. The company avers that its customers can now use any of its data centers to build secure, high-performance and scalable infrastructures to power applications based on a combination of dedicated and virtual servers. This announcement coincides with the effective phasing out of its two-year old 'Cloud Connect' service, a legacy feature that enabled the cross connection of physical and cloud environments.

It articulates that after offering 'Cloud Connect' functionality, the company incorporated its approach for combining virtual and physical servers within its public cloud service. From the same company portal, businesses provision unique, dynamically scalable virtual and physical infrastructures that are custom crafted to meet distinct requirements of businesses around the world.

The company states that its Hybrid Cloud model combines the benefits of dynamic and on-demand scalability from a cloud environment with the permanence and compliant infrastructure available from dedicated, managed server offerings. Leveraging a standards-based IT framework that integrates critical infrastructure appliances and services is core to its Hybrid solution. The company's hybrid hosting environments allow for cross usage of hardware-based F5 load balancers, private VLANs, integrated cloud storage and hardware firewall solutions by physical and cloud servers alike.

"GoGrid's Hybrid Cloud offering is an important customer and market development and continues to be a true differentiator," said Jeff Samuels, Chief Marketing Officer at GoGrid. "While other companies in the market are only now catching up with the cross connect functionality that GoGrid launched in 2008, GoGrid has advanced its capabilities by fully integrating our Hybrid Cloud into GoGrid's public cloud service. Our customers are now able to seamlessly expand their topology with both physical and virtual instances in all GoGrid data centers."

"GoGrid's Hybrid Cloud solution represents a new way of deploying infrastructure that truly meets my business needs," said Pierre Chew, CEO and Founder of Plan Elements (planelements.com), a new event planning solution. "Managing my previous infrastructure was cumbersome, difficult and did not allow me to react to changes within my business fast enough. Now, using GoGrid's Hybrid Cloud solution, my business has complete control over our destiny, using a combination of dedicated and virtual servers which I manage to ensure both security and elasticity."

"Hybrid Hosting is an essential part of businesses embracing the cloud as it provides users the important capability of choosing between physical and virtual servers when building infrastructure," said Philbert Shih, Senior Analyst at Tier1 Research. "Allowing users to manage both from a single interface in the same environment - as opposed to a physical cross connect - is the end goal of Hybrid Cloud Hosting and is where the entire market is heading."
