GoGrid and GigaSpaces Join Forces to Create an Enterprise-Grade PaaS Offering for Java and .NET
San Francisco, CA October 8, 2009–GoGrid, the Cloud Infrastructure Hosting service from ServePath Dedicated Hosting, and GigaSpaces Technologies, developer of the industry-leading, cloud-enabled eXtreme Application Platform (XAP), announce a strategic technology partnership that provides the most robust Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering for Java and .NET available. The combination of GoGrid's secured, hardened, scalable, and customizable environment with XAP's power, interoperability, and elasticity provides a first-of-its-kind, enterprise-grade public cloud offering customers can rely on to deliver all of their mission-critical applications.
The partners' proven strengths create a reliable, high-speed and scalable infrastructure in the cloud for the most demanding requirements. Currently, GoGrid is leveraging its 10+ years of experience in enterprise-level data center hosting, applying its understanding of uptime, security, and service level agreements to the public cloud offering. Meanwhile, GigaSpaces ensures that its Fortune 500 production customers enjoy enterprise-grade extreme transaction processing for high-throughput, low-latency applications based on Java, .NET, C and C++. GoGrid also provides customers with the ability to create and store customer images (MyGSIs), a key differentiator for enterprise customers over other public cloud offerings as well as Hybrid Hosting solutions that privately connect cloud front-ends with dedicated back-end infrastructures.
GoGrid's standard, fully customizable Windows and Linux cloud servers leverage GigaSpaces' support of Windows/.Net, Java, Linux, VMWare and Xen. This provides smooth operation regardless of application language or environment by the use of XAP's middleware services such as data grid, messaging and parallel processing (map/reduce), which are designed to enable scaling of services on-demand.
"Our partnership with GigaSpaces allows us to create a public cloud using Java and .Net-compatible high-speed application processing that works synergistically with our existing infrastructure," says John Keagy, Founder and CEO of ServePath, the parent company of GoGrid. "GoGrid customers will now be able to seamlessly leverage the GoGrid public cloud for on-demand capacity scaling by using GigaSpaces' SLA-based management capabilities."
XAP's architecture enables organizations to flexibly move between their data centers and the cloud or use both simultaneously, offering a clear migration path from a hosted or on-premise environment to the public cloud. Therefore, ServePath customers will be able to leverage the GoGrid public cloud for processing overflow, reducing over provisioning and costs. In addition, ServePath customers can keep their proprietary data on the server farm while leveraging the GoGrid public cloud to scale the web tier components of any application.
"Adding the GoGrid/ServePath infrastructure to our supported environments increases our customers' flexibility to manage their data processing," says Zeev Bikowsky, GigaSpaces CEO. "GoGrid's enterprise-grade cloud capabilities provide a great opportunity for further IT efficiency and cost savings for XAP's .Net customers, providing an exceptionally flexible run-time environment on the cloud."
