GoGrid Charts New Territory as the First Leading Cloud Provider to Offer Managed Services Across Multiple Clouds and On-Premise Instances

Managed Services Stack Is the First Comprehensive Offering to Embrace the New Multi-Cloud Reality of Today's Business Landscape

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced its new Managed Services Stack, designed to conveniently ensure reliability and performance when using multiple cloud platforms, including large commodity clouds and private clouds in on-premises data centers. By handling everything from security to monitoring and backup across any cloud or on-premise infrastructure, GoGrid's Managed Services Stack lets companies enjoy high-availability environments that don't depend on a single provider so they can focus on their core business. Innovative companies increasingly rely on multiple clouds and on-premise infrastructure to guarantee the highest performance and availability for their solutions.

Operational consistency is the key to achieving reliability and optimal performance, but this can be difficult when using multiple clouds. Employing different tools for fundamental tasks such as security, monitoring, and back-ups can cause inconsistencies that create confusion and risk. GoGrid's comprehensive Managed Services Stack conveniently delivers operational consistency across varied environments.

"It's no secret that our customers and our competitors' customers are 'polyglot users,' relying on multiple clouds and on-premise instances to deliver their unique products and services," said GoGrid COO & EVP Technology Mark Worsey. "Given GoGrid's stellar reputation for managed services on our own cloud, we wanted to offer the same level of support for competitors' clouds as well as on-premise infrastructure. Our Managed Services Stack is tailor-made for today's sophisticated cloud user, with centralized services to handle deployment, managed security, monitoring, load-balancing, backups, and other complex IT challenges."

GoGrid is the only leading cloud provider to enable the convenient, reliable use of multiple clouds and to embrace the contemporary polyglot architectures popular for distributing risk and optimizing costs and performance. The new Managed Services Stack offers all the essential capabilities needed for multi-cloud success.

Availability & Pricing

GoGrid's Managed Services Stack provides critical support to business that want to maintain high availability of their solutions and ensure their investments are protected. The Managed Backup, Managed Monitoring, and Managed Security Services are available now; additional services will be rolled out in the second half of 2014.
