GoGrid Celebrates Big Data Partners and "Freedom From Lock-In" at San Francisco Meetup

Event Will Highlight How Orchestration Enables Companies to Achieve Amazing Performance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2014) - GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), is pleased to announce its upcoming meetup, the "Freedom From Lock-in Celebration," on Tuesday, July 1, in San Francisco. Complementing the 2014 Spark Summit, GoGrid's meetup will bring together some of the brightest minds in Big Data. The event will celebrate GoGrid partners Aerospike, DataStax, and MemSQL, which have recently announced 1-Button Deploy™ solutions that leverage GoGrid's orchestration to dramatically simplify the process of moving their Big Data applications from trial to pilot project and finally to full-scale production.

"We're happy to celebrate the growing ecosystem of Open Data Services technology providers," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "Today's most innovative companies are 'polyglot users' leveraging a variety of technologies to power their products and services at the highest level. GoGrid is proud to further this movement with fast and easy orchestration and an un-opinionated cloud platform."

Tuesday's event will feature opening remarks from GoGrid's CEO and introductions to its Big Data partners, along with ample time for networking and discussion. GoGrid enables companies that leverage Big Data technologies to grow as rapidly as needed by offering the only cloud infrastructure purpose-built for Big Data. Companies from a wide range of industries, including advertising, eCommerce, and healthcare, depend on the massive scalability, speed, and reliability delivered by Big Data technologies on GoGrid's infrastructure.
