Web hosting provider Applied Innovations announced on Thursday it has introduced Microsoft Windows Server 2008 hosting for dedicated servers. The operating system, set for release next February, represents the next generation of Microsoft-powered hosting technology and includes the latest version Internet Information Services.
Through a partnership with Microsoft, Applied Innovations will enable its dedicated server customers to run both Windows Server 2008 and IIS7 as a trial until the products are officially released. Dedicated server customers will then be able to choose to upgrade to the release to manufacturing version of the software. Microsoft has not yet released pricing for Windows Server 2008.
"This early introduction allows our customers to foresee what's coming to the Web and Application hosting world," says Jess Coburn, CEO of Applied Innovations. "The new IIS platform, with its modular architecture, hits higher overall performance benchmarks, offers more robust security, and provides extensibility that hasn’t been available in previous versions."
Applied Innovations offers dedicated hosting from $99 per month, which includes many value-added features, such as a SmarterTools business management software bundle, round-the-clock technical support and access to a range of premium add-ons.
