(Gawkwire) – Cirrus Tech Ltd., a web host specializing in services for VMs and VPS in Canada, announces the roll out of Microsoft’s Windows 2012 server on its virtual machine and virtual private server hosting plans. All Cirrus VM and VPS users can now upgrade to the new Windows server and can benefit from the improvements this latest update offers, including enhancements to user experience, server administration and virtualization. Windows Server 2012 brings with it hundreds of new features not available in previous versions.
“Windows Server 2012 is a game-changing release for Microsoft, offering a Cloud OS built from the ground up,” says Vinay Nair, Windows Server Product Manager for Microsoft Canada. “Knowing very well that the majority of our customers’ workloads are Microsoft applications, and that they are now looking to the cloud to drive better economies of scale, we are more than pleased that Cirrus Tech has seized the opportunity to provide a viable hosted alternative for our customers’ virtual machines. This will help our customers realize the efficiencies of the public cloud much more quickly.”
VPS hosting and Virtual Machines from Cirrus now offer deployment on Windows Server 2012. The latest server from Microsoft offers users a variety of new features to further improve their VPS and VM experience. A new user interface makes managing multiple servers easier than before with more than ten times the number of commandlets than the previous server. An improved task manager is more intuitive and user friendly, including features such as the ability to see heavier resource use at a glance, and improved organization of applications, resources, CPU and memory. The IP address management role allows users to administer and monitor their servers running DHCP and DNS, with IPv4 and IPv6 both fully supported. Windows Server 2012 also includes an updated version of Hyper-V with an array of new features including network virtualization, storage resource pools, multi-tenancy, cross-premise connectivity, and cloud backup. The new server also includes version 8.0 of Internet Information Services (IIS). All Cirrus users running on Windows VPS and VM plans now have the full power of Windows Server 2012 at their disposal.
“At Cirrus, we have built up our VM and VPS hosting service from the ground up so that we can offer our customers the most reliable and cost-effective solution possible,” says Cirrus CEO Ehsan Mirdamadi. “We are committed to providing our users a variety of options so that they can build a virtualized environment that is in line with their unique needs. Rolling out Windows Server 2012 with its enhanced features for the benefit of all our customers is part and parcel of this commitment. Our users want powerful solutions that are user-friendly.
