Free f5 hardware load balancing and other features give you the control of a familiar server environment in the flexibility and scalability of the cloud.

The API allows userâ€™s to programmatically control their GoGrid environment. It also enables users to script and chain various commands. For instance, one can simply type â€œgetâ€ available unused IP addresses, â€œaddâ€ a server with unassigned IP, â€œpowerâ€ a server when it is ready, etc. It can also be used by resellers to skin their own portals, and allows for 3rd party developers to create management tools for GoGrid instances. It requires no knowledge of WSDL, CORBA or RMI to use, and supports API calls from Java, PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby and C# as well as shell scripting language like bash.
