GoGrid Cloud Infrastructure Innovations Provide the Perfect Backbone for Internet-of-Things Applications

SSD and High RAM Cloud Servers on 10G Network Fabric Withstand Rigorous Demands of High-Performance, Distributed Databases

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced the release of the only SSD and High RAM cloud servers on 10-Gbps network fabric available on-demand and across multiple data centers. Tailored to run high-volume, real-time workloads that ensure maximum availability and unmatched capacity for failover, the enhanced GoGrid infrastructure provides the perfect backbone to support the substantial data demands created by the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) and related applications.

GoGrid's expanded SSD and High RAM servers connect across a screaming-fast 10G network to provide the essential infrastructure to support the complex demands of Big Data and IoT solutions. Companies that are ingesting and collecting data in real-time need a high-performance network or risk losing their data or being unable to access it. For example, a company providing wearable technology customers use to monitor health statistics needs to feed the constant stream of information generated by the device into a database that can crunch the data and take action immediately, if necessary. Health technology companies in particular also need to ensure that data is handled securely according to HIPAA guidelines.

"We're laser-focused on supporting the most innovative Big Data applications by offering the highest-performing network with private dedicated connectivity," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "There are very limited on-demand options for running high-performance workloads today, and most cloud providers only offer general compute workloads on 1G network fabric. If you want to run a high-performance distributed database across multiple data centers on a 10G network, you can do that only on GoGrid and nowhere else."

Expanding Data Demands Require In-Memory Computing on High-Performance Networks

The Need for Speed: In the past, companies could handle most of their data with general compute workloads that didn't require high availability. Organizations typically didn't worry about network latency unless they were running a NoSQL store or collecting data that was growing at a massive rate. Because today's complex Internet-of-Things applications leverage the exponentially growing number of connected devices, they require faster network connections and more powerful servers to capture and act on that data. GoGrid's new High RAM cloud servers enable these applications to run entire workloads in-memory -- a necessity for real-time decision-making -- and allow customers to deploy up to 256 GB RAM per machine.

"We stress-tested GoGrid's raw disk servers and saw excellent transactions per second performance," said David Kloc, SVP of Global Business Development at DataStax, the leading distributed database management system that brings Apache Cassandra to the enterprise. "GoGrid is an ideal place to run massive DataStax workloads as a central component of any Internet-of-Things application."

No Downtime: The expanded infrastructure gives GoGrid customers the power to deploy more complex distributed applications that demand high availability and leverage West Coast and East Coast failover. Businesses that want to run a distributed database in-memory across multiple cloud servers can rest assured the database is always on because GoGrid's high-performance fabric provides a resilient network backbone. In addition, GoGrid will soon add SSD and High RAM cloud servers to its Amsterdam data center, giving customers even greater availability and failover.
