GoGrid, the leading Cloud Computing service provider of Linux and Windows Cloud Servers, today announced that it has been chosen as a finalist by IDG World Expo and LinuxWorld.com, for the Product Excellence Award of Best Virtualization Solution. This highly regarded and competitive honor will be awarded at the LinuxWorld 2008 Conference and Expo, which is occurring August 4th through August 7th, 2008 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
ServePath, the creators of GoGrid, won the coveted 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, builds on last year's virtual server success with fast scaling and portal GUI control of instant servers.
GoGrid is a Cloud Computing service that enables users to quickly and easily create, deploy, load balance and manage Linux and Windows 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 network infrastructures.
System Administrators, Developers and Resellers who partner with GoGrid enjoy GoGrid's REST-like Application Programming Interface (API) that allows for programmatic control of the customer-facing GoGrid infrastructure using clearly documented commands. The GoGrid API provides the ability to create interactive GoGrid management applications, allows resellers to logo and skin their own GoGrid portals and enables the scripting and chaining of various GoGrid commands for automation.

"GoGrid's unique and rich user interface, coupled with its ground-breaking and revolutionary virtualization technology and infrastructure make it truly outstanding and a leader within the world of Cloud Computing."
