GoGrid Announces New Pricing & More Volume Discount Plans

With this release, we are also making some changes (for the better) on our pricing plans

Last week, we released a new version of GoGrid which includes new RAM Hour and Bandwidth Pricing Plans, included larger volume discounts. Further details of this released covered in this post are:

  • New RAM Hour and Bandwidth Pricing Plans
  • New Linux & Windows Base Images
  • Behind-the-scenes Performance Improvements

Read on for more details.

New RAM Hour and Bandwidth Pricing Plans

With this release, we are also making some changes (for the better) on our pricing plans. Coupled with this, we have now made it even easier to upgrade (or downgrade) your plans from within the GoGrid portal.

Once you agree to the new Terms of Service and click the Confirm button, your upgrade will be sent to our team. Note that orders are reviewed and processed quickly, however, it is not an immediate process and could take 1 business day to complete.

The process for Data Transfer Plan upgrades (or downgrades) are the same as with the RAM Upgrade/Downgrade process. If you have questions about which plan or combination of plans works best for you, please contact a GoGrid Sales Representative.

New Windows and Linux Base Images

With this release we have also added support for the following new base images:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (32 & 64-bit images)
  • CentOS 5.3 Linux (32 & 64-bit images)
  • Windows 2003 SP2/R2 (32 & 64-bit images)

Another change that you may see as you view the currently available images is the fact that there are fewer overall images. We have made the decision to focus our image support on root operating systems, and less on “stacks” that are essentially add-ons to the base system. So, you will see that various images that had stacks have been End of Lifed (EOL).

But, since you have full administrative and root access to any image that you deploy within GoGrid, you can install these stacks or any applications or code that you see fit. We believe that by focusing on root operating systems, we can provide a richer base infrastructure and leave the customizations to you. However, as our Partner program continues to grow, you will see many more images appear with a variety of great functions and features.
