GoGrid Debuts First On-Demand Platform for Evaluating and Running Big Data Technologies

November 7, 2013 by  

Web Hosting ServicesSan Francisco, Calif. – GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced the release of its purpose-built, on-demand platform for evaluating and running multiple Big Data solutions quickly, simply, reliably, securely, and cost-effectively. GoGrid enables both power users and developers new to Big Data to evaluate and run multiple solutions with 1-Button Deploy™—the ability to instantly spin up on-demand development and production environments preconfigured with Big Data solutions. GoGrid’s 1-Button Deploy™ solutions are now available for Mongo and Riak; Hadoop on Cassandra or HBase, Memcache, and Postgres are scheduled for Q1 2014 release.

“Our largest customers have always evaluated and run multiple Big Data solutions on our high-performance platform,” said GoGrid CEO and Co-Founder John Keagy. “Now customers can leverage our Open Data Services that support successful management of open source, commercial, and proprietary technologies across multiple platforms. We’ve made that orchestration simple, plus we’ve shaved months off the learning curve for evaluating and running Big Data technologies in a highly optimized, on-demand environment.”

Traditionally, Big Data projects have focused on centralized data warehouses and business analytics. With daily exponential growth in the amount of new data paired with the proliferation of devices delivering offers and services based on that data, every new application must leverage Big Data in easy-to-deploy, high-performance, real-time environments. The result: Businesses’ approach to Big Data is now entering a radically transformational stage.

According to a Forrester Research report by analyst Brian Hopkins, “Yesterday’s correct data architecture involved centralized warehouses, marts, operational data stores, and a lot of [extract, transfer and load] ETL. Hub-and-spoke takes a different approach; it features rapid analytics and extreme-scale operations on raw data in an affordable distributed data hub.”

GoGrid’s 1-Button Deploy™ solutions include optimized state-of-the-art SSD cloud servers, 10-Gbps high-performance fabric, firewalls, and block storage.
