GoGrid's Groundbreaking 1-Button Deploy Transforms Customer Access to Big Data Solutions

Automated Approach Lets Customers Easily and Quickly Evaluate and Run an Array of Big Data Solutions With Orchestration Technology Powered by Ansible

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 11, 2014) - GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced 1-Button Deploy™, providing organizations with the fastest and easiest way to evaluate and run the latest Big Data solutions on the only cloud purpose-built for Big Data. GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy™ dramatically simplifies the process of moving Big Data applications from trial to pilot project and finally to full-scale production.

Powered by Ansible, 1-Button Deploy™ orchestrates deployment of a multi-server Big Data cluster across GoGrid's virtual servers in a matter of minutes rather than days or weeks, saving companies money and engineering resources while shortening time-to-market. GoGrid now offers automatic deployment for the most innovative Big Data technologies, including 1-Button Deploy™ of MongoDB, 1-Button Deploy™ of Basho's Riak, and 1-Button Deploy™ of Cassandra, with 1-Button Deploy™ of Hortonworks' Hadoop scheduled to go live in March.

"Enterprises are eager to evaluate and implement the latest Big Data solutions, but until now, they haven't had the resources to do so quickly and easily," said GoGrid CEO John Keagy. "GoGrid's new 1-Button Deploy™ solution, combined with our Open Data Services platform, offers companies immediate access to the most advanced technologies on the largest server selection tailor-made for Big Data. Essentially, we give developers the keys to the Lamborghini, letting them drive best-of-breed Big Data solutions without spending valuable time and resources on setup." 

GoGrid's 1-Button Deploy™ removes significant hurdles for customers looking to pilot new Big Data solutions. With GoGrid's approach, customers no longer have to waste time configuring a technology they want to try out or discover they're essentially "locked in" to a proprietary platform or vendor that doesn't meet their business needs.

"Our technology lets organizations launch the latest solutions with the push of a button, dramatically reducing deployment time and opening up a world of Big Data options to businesses that may not have the in-house expertise or resources to take advantage of them otherwise," said Ansible CEO Said Ziouani. "We're delighted that GoGrid is supporting the continued development of our orchestration technology, and we're excited to work together to advance the Open Data Services movement."

By making it easy for companies to explore the largest selection of Big Data solutions on its purpose-built Big Data infrastructure, GoGrid is paving the way for businesses to quickly adopt the right technology -- or combination of technologies -- for their specific Big Data applications. With its automatic 1-Button Deploy™ technology, high-performance network fabric, and broad choice of sever options, GoGrid's open platform provides an alternative to proprietary web hosting services that discourage the adoption of new technologies in favor of their branded products and platforms.
