GoGrid is a cloud computing hosting service for deploying and scaling server infrastructure on demand. It hosts Linux and Windows virtual machines managed by a multi-server control panel, supporting Windows Server, Red Hat, and CentOS Linux.
A good thing about GoGrid is a user-friendly control panel with many options to create and manage servers. Another point is a high rate of speed for commissioning new hardware and setting up your servers. Moreover, GoGrid allows you to choose a server image (CentOS, Redhat, Windows) with some out-of-the-box support for Ruby on Rails and LAMP.
The usage of memory is linked to the disk space you get assigned. So, if you have a 512MB server, you get 25GB that you cannot enlarge without creating a new server. Another thing is that you cannot create your own image and are limited to the choice offered. So, if you want Ubuntu or Gentoo or something else that is not included, you need to choose another option. Finally, you cannot make snapshots or backup via the Web interface.
GoGrid’s pricing model makes moving from VPS to GoGrid cost-efficient, especially if you go for pre-paid packages. However, GoGrid is mostly suitable for those users who have previous experience in managing VPS, VDS, or a dedicated server without automation tools. If you need to manage SSH and the server environment yourself, try GoGrid.
