GoGrid Opens European Operations in Amsterdam

Cloud Infrastructure Leader Continues Rapid Global Expansion

San Francisco, Calif - January 25, 2012 - GoGrid, a leading cloud infrastructure company, today announced that it has established its EMEA Headquarters, GoGrid AMS BV, and a new data center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to provide fully integrated, on-demand cloud infrastructure services around the globe.

Uniquely architected for seamless, scalable, worldwide customer infrastructure deployments, GoGrid leverages a common architectural footprint that ensures consistent functionality and performance across all regions. GoGrid's EMEA cloud infrastructure services will deliver full-featured solutions via a single management portal. Customers throughout the globe can create, manage, and deploy robust cloud or complex solutions in any of GoGrid's data centers, including the new Amsterdam location as well as San Francisco, CA, and Ashburn, VA.

"Ringing in 2012 with the launch of our EMEA Headquarters is a terrific way to start the new year," said Warren Heffelfinger, CEO of GoGrid. "We're particularly excited about our customer momentum, which shows that we're well-positioned to gain traction as the cloud computing market accelerates. 2011 was a banner year for GoGrid, with strong execution across the board. Our focus this year will continue to be on customer success, technology innovation, ecosystem development, and global expansion."

"International markets are currently driving more than 40% of GoGrid's business," said Jeffrey Samuels, GoGrid's chief marketing officer. "Because EMEA represents a significant growth opportunity, our priority has been finding the right location and building the team to successfully launch our European operations. We've extended GoGrid's world-class cloud computing technologies to address the specific customer and infrastructure needs of the broader region."

To support its EMEA expansion, GoGrid is deploying its cloud infrastructure in Equinix's International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Amsterdam. With Platform Equinix, GoGrid can directly connect to enterprise customers and strategic partners in multiple business ecosystems as well as access high-performance connectivity options via Equinix's ecosystem of more than 680 network suppliers. GoGrid is also leveraging the Equinix Marketplace™ to promote and sell its cloud infrastructure services to the more than 4,000 ecosystem participants that are a simple cross-connect away in Equinix data centers.

"We are delighted GoGrid has chosen Equinix to support its new European operations. Today's data center is a high-performance business exchange where companies connect and do business with their ecosystem of customers, suppliers, and partners," said Vince DiMemmo, general manager, global cloud and IT services at Equinix. "With Platform Equinix, cloud services companies like GoGrid gain a powerful foundation to deploy cloud solutions with the speed, performance, and security that customers demand. At the same time, the Equinix Marketplace opens up new business opportunities so that cloud providers can truly turn their data centers into revenue centers."
