GoGrid Expands Open Data Services Ecosystem With New Partnerships to Offer Simple and Rapid Deployment of Big Data Technologies

Collaboration With Couchbase, Clustrix, DataStax, and MongoDB Gives Customers Easy Access to More Best-of-Breed Solutions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced new partnerships with key Big Data technology providers -- Clustrix and Couchbase -- to provide companies with the fastest and easiest way to evaluate and run their applications in the only cloud purpose-built for Big Data. The new partnerships continue to expand the ODS ecosystem GoGrid has built with its initial partnerships with Basho, DataStax, Hortonworks, and MongoDB. With these new partnerships, customers now have a frictionless path, featuring a 1-Button Deploy™ orchestration process that simplifies evaluation and deployment of the best Big Data technologies. In addition to the new partnerships, GoGrid is announcing agreements to produce a 1-Button Deploy™ of DataStax Enterprise Edition and of MongoDB production replica sets.

"We're excited to see the Open Data Services movement continue to gain momentum as more partners make their solutions easily available on the best infrastructure for Big Data," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "Our initial 1-Button Deploy™ solutions have been a fantastic success for GoGrid and our partners, making best-of-breed Big Data technologies available without the time and expense usually associated with manually deploying these solutions across customers' infrastructure."

While the platform-as-a-service (PaaS) approach locks users into single-vendor commodity clouds, GoGrid's ODS platform supports all leading Big Data technologies. With its 1-Button Deploy™ automated orchestration, GoGrid offers the speed and scalability of PaaS but avoids the downsides of vendor lock-in and the slow development cycles of proprietary technology. Instead of requiring weeks or months for research, configuration, and deployment, 1-Button Deploy™ gets enterprises up and running with a complete solution -- including a development or production Big Data cluster plus the required infrastructure -- in a matter of minutes. This approach gives companies the freedom to discover which technology -- or combination of technologies -- best suits their needs.

The new partnerships enable GoGrid to offer automatic deployment for another five innovative Big Data technologies: 1-Button Deploy™ of ClustrixDB, 1-Button Deploy™ of Couchbase, 1-Button Deploy™ of DataStax Enterprise Edition, and 1-Button Deploy™ of MongoDB production replica sets. The ease of GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy™ technology continues to play a key role in driving the adoption of partner technologies, especially for the growing number of customers that rely on multiple Big Data solutions.

What Partners are Saying

"In today's world of fast-paced cloud computing, companies have an almost insatiable appetite for speed and scalability," said Tony Barbagallo, VP of marketing at Clustrix. "Working with GoGrid helps us exceed customers' needs in both those areas because our solutions are purpose-built to support today's dynamic workloads."

"GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy for Couchbase is already in use by businesses like Martini Media, who have opted to leverage on-demand Big Data infrastructure," said Doug Laird, Couchbase CMO. "We are thrilled to formally announce this partnership so more companies can benefit from quickly deploying Couchbase Server's unmatched NoSQL performance on GoGrid's cloud designed for Big Data."

"We're excited that GoGrid is offering rapid deployment for MongoDB with its 1-Button Deploy™ technology," said Matt Asay, VP of business development and marketing at MongoDB. "The tool deploys MongoDB replica sets, which provide high availability, automatic failover, and zero-downtime upgrades, and this partnership will let more customers support the increasing demands of continuously available read/write operations for Big Data."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
