San Francisco, CA (Vocus) February 17, 2009
GoGrid, the Cloud Computing division of ServePath, LLC today announced the immediate availability of larger RAM, CPU and persistent storage Cloud Server instances. The new 4 and 8 GB RAM Cloud Servers further broaden GoGrid's line of Web and Database Cloud servers, enabling complete infrastructure in the Cloud.
To bring higher performance server lines into the GoGrid cloudcenter, all 64-bit GoGrid images are now available in 4 and 8 GB RAM configurations. The 4 GB RAM server images can be deployed via the GoGrid web portal and API. The 8 GB RAM server images currently may only be deployed via the GoGrid API.
The 4 and 8 GB RAM images, available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1, CentOS 5.1, and Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 64-bit operating systems bring a new level of performance to the GoGrid line. 4 GB Cloud Servers have 3 CPU Cores and 8 GB have 6 CPU Cores, ensuring dedicated CPU allocations and high performance.
All GoGrid Cloud Servers come with persistent storage. The new larger RAM allocations announced today, are delivered with increased persistent storage: 4 GB Cloud Servers have 240 GB of hard drive space and 8 GB have 480 GB of storage allocated at boot time. Additional storage can be added using GoGrid's dynamically scalable Cloud Storage offering which includes a 10 GB free allotment to start with. Each 1 GB thereafter costs $0.15/GB/month.
