GoGrid Cloud is reaching end-of-life (EOL) on May 31st, 2019.
You may be able to migrate your GoGrid Linux servers to Rackspace Public Cloud using InstanceSync. You do not need to stop your GoGrid server to complete the migration.
This process is offered as an unsupported courtesy and is not guaranteed to work for your GoGrid Linux servers.
Which Rackspace SLA Is Right For Me?
The level of service provided at GoGrid aligns more closely with Rackspace's Managed Infrastructure SLA. See this page for more details about the 2 SLAs offered by Rackspace Public Cloud.
Which Rackspace Region Is Right For Me?
Rackspace Public Cloud has 6 regions:
There are 2 account types: Global (which has access to all regions EXCEPT London) and UK (Which has access to LON exclusively). Choose the region and account type that fits best for your application. It is possible to open and link multiple accounts.
Which Rackspace Cloud Flavor is Right For Me?
Technically, any Rackspace Cloud server with enough disk space should work. The disk allocations are slightly smaller in Rackspace Cloud, but if you haven't used all the disk space on your GoGrid cloud server, you should be able to migrate to the same size memory server. If you are using all the disk space on your GoGrid cloud server, choose a larger Rackspace Cloud flavor.
Rackspace Public Cloud does not offer a file-based solution such as GoGrid's Cloud Storage. Instead, choose Rackspace Cloud Block Storage for a block-based solution.
See above for an estimate (prices may vary according to region, image used, and SLA). You can also see pricing sheets for other Rackspace Cloud products (Cloud Load Balancers, Cloud Block Storage, etc) here.
