Leading IaaS providers team up to educate businesses on building robust cloud infrastructures

GoGrid is one of the most advanced cloud infrastructure providers in the marketplace and we believe that it is important to inform their user base on the advantages of using Ubuntu as a base operating system for infrastructure deployments.

GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure provider, and Canonical, the sponsor of Ubuntu, will host a webinar titled “Ubuntu in the GoGrid Cloud” on Thursday, March 24th, 2011. GoGrid currently provides 32 and 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04 GoGrid Server Images (GSIs) within both its cloud infrastructure service and dedicated server line. As one of the most popular Linux Operating System distributions in the marketplace, Canonical’s Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Long Term Support) is considered one of the best choices for cloud server infrastructure build-outs. With five different options for industry-leading operating systems, IT professionals can be assured that their GoGrid cloud infrastructure needs are met.

“GoGrid is one of the most advanced cloud infrastructure providers in the marketplace and we believe that it is important to inform their user base on the advantages of using Ubuntu as a base operating system for infrastructure deployments,” said Neil Levine, VP of Corporate Services at Canonical. “Ubuntu has been powering infrastructures throughout the world and it's great news that GoGrid customers can craft robust infrastructures using Ubuntu.”

GoGrid currently offers its cloud computing customers a variety of Linux and Windows Operating System, including 32 and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu 10.04, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Debian, and Windows Server 2003 & 2008. With GoGrid, customers can easily and quickly deploy cloud servers using any one of these standard operating systems via the GoGrid web-based portal or API.

“Providing customizable, flexible and robust choices for infrastructure design elements like multiple operating systems, virtual and physical appliances and multiple data center offerings means that GoGrid customers can create their cloud solution exactly to seamlessly meet their requirements,” said John Keagy, CEO and founder of GoGrid. “Working closely with Canonical, we are excited to jointly train and educate current and future GoGrid customers on the power of using Ubuntu as an Operating System in the Cloud.”
