Cloud hosting provider GoGrid announced that founder and chairman John Keagy will return to the role of CEO. GoGrid has seen significant growth in the past year with its pure-play infrastructure-as-a-service, offering public cloud and private cloud infrastructure solutions, and recently expanded into the Europe.
While it might not make as big of a news splash as when Apple founder Steve Jobs returned to his company as CEO in 1997, cloud company GoGrid recently did some reminiscing of their own. Keagy pointed towards recent initiatives undertaken by GoGrid including the company's opening of a data center facility in Amsterdam, The Netherlands just earlier this month.
At some point, the founder of almost any business will face a decision about whether to continue in their leadership role when the company reaches certain pivotal milestones around growth, financing and other concerns that aren't necessarily tied directly into the entrepreneurial notions that sparked the business.
Keagy is reassuming the leadership role at a company that definitely has the brand recognition as one of the pioneering organizations in the cloud hosting space - a market with a handful of leaders and a ton of market share to grab.
eWEEK's main headline for 2012 is "How to Control Data," and ground zero for this is the data center. Those who know how to control both the archival and current views of the data are most often the ones who come up with significant new ideas and promote business progress. IT that is progressive will gain ground in 2012. From Slide #7 - Amazon, Rackspace, GoGrid, AT&T, Verizon and others were pleased with their 2011 business as more and more enterprises discovered that they can get exactly the services (storage, analytics, accounting, social networking, application monitoring, for example) from Web services , and get them on-demand, and in reliable fashion.
Amazon Web Services customers this week are worrying about a server reboot the provider is pushing out, but if users have architected their applications properly, they shouldn't be concerned, experts said. GoGrid, an infrastructure-as-a-service provider, also noted that if businesses run their own servers internally, they have to make similar updates. Moving to the cloud saves administrators a lot of management trouble overall, but this kind of required reboot might be "trouble some thought they left behind when they got to the cloud," Jayson Vantuyl, chief engineer at GoGrid, said.
