Cloud Servers For Windows, Ready For Business

Filed in by Blake Yeager | August 9, 2010 9:08 am

We’re ready to take the Beta label off of Cloud Servers for Windows and open the doors for business. When we initially released the Cloud Servers for Windows Beta, we wanted to ensure that we had the right features in place backed by an industry leading SLA before releasing it into production. We’ve had a highly successful Beta program with over 2000 users testing the product. The amount of feedback we’ve received has been tremendous and critical to moving forward on our official launch into production. [1]

For any business that runs Window-based hosting and wants the advantages of a cloud computing[2] environment, Cloud Servers for Windows is a perfect fit. This product is ideal for testing and developing applications as well as supporting the needs for a highly scalable environment. Cloud Servers for Windows features include:

We’ve seen a variety of use cases throughout our Beta program. SpaBooker[3], for example, has been using Cloud Servers for Window Beta to host their entire staging environment. In addition, they utilize our managed dedicated servers for their actual application and Cloud Sites for web content, making them a true hybrid customer. Daniel Lizio-Katzen, SpaBooker Managing Director, states:

“Rackspace Cloud Servers has been the ideal solution to separate our actual application from our public facing website. We currently have our entire staging environment running on the Cloud Servers for Windows and the overall ease of use has been phenomenal. The cost savings compared to traditional dedicated hosting are also substantial.”

For $.08 an hour, you can spin up a server with 1GB RAM and 40GB disk in minutes. If you’re a .NET developer, small-to-medium sized business, IT administrator or even an existing Rackspace customer, spinning up a few servers to test takes little time and cost.
