GoGrid announced the availability of GoGrid's QuickStart Facebook servers, which allow businesses to build and deploy Facebook applications. The QuickStart Facebook Server automates and speeds up the Facebook application setup process, enabling Facebook developers to create, integrate, host and scale Facebook applications. By using a GoGrid QuickStart Facebook Server, both ASP.NET and Linux developers and systems administrators are now able to roll out Facebook-enabled servers in under 5 minutes, and when user adoption of their Facebook application increases, individual GoGrid QuickStart Facebook Servers can be scaled into load balanced server networks.
One month after beta launch, GoGrid proves that servers controlled, scaled and load balanced through the GoGrid server control panel can take the pain out of hosting, saving time and money. Companies, from startups and Web 2.0 businesses to corporations can now get their network architecture deployed with few technology resources and little disruption to the flow of business. GoGrid's hosted servers with root and administrator access, full management control and support for both Windows and Linux-based server operating systems raise the productivity of IT departments. GoGrid servers and server networks deploy, scale and load balance instantly.
"We are the first server company to deliver real servers with multiple operating system choices and total administrative control to system administrators worldwide who want to operate with no server hardware" says John Keagy, CEO of GoGrid parent company ServePath. "The second knock-out punch now comes from the delivery of GoGrid's QuickStart Facebook Servers for multiple operating systems that enable businesses and developers to quickly execute their Facebook business plans and start deriving revenues from their Facebook development efforts."
Initially the GoGrid QuickStart Facebook Servers are
Businesses, developers and others who want to run Facebook
applications need reliable servers with robust internet connectivity (Facebook
does not host applications). GoGrid's instant servers, based on
Xen-virtualization, are excellent solutions for Facebook developers since
GoGrid servers have multiple, diverse Gigabit broadband connections and the
servers deploy and scale instantly. A Facebook developer starts by signing up
for a Facebook Developers Account, then signs up for a GoGrid account and
deploys a QuickStart Facebook Server, available for both Linux and ASP.NET with
only a few mouse clicks. The developer then uploads his application to the
QuickStart Facebook Server and is up and running.
ServePath continues to trail-blaze within the Web 2.0
infrastructure space with its GoGrid server innovations and Facebook
integration, demonstrating ServePath / GoGrid's commitment to delivering the
latest hosting and application development solutions and innovations.
