ORLANDO, FL (3/18/2008) – Server Intellect (www.serverintellect.com), a Microsoft Gold Certified provider of advanced Windows-based Shared, Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Dedicated Web hosting solutions, today introduced Microsoft Windows Server 2008 on its entire line of managed Windows dedicated servers. Windows Server 2008 was released by Microsoft just last week.
With today’s announcement, Server Intellect becomes one of the first Windows Web hosts and Microsoft Gold Certified Partners to offer Windows Server 2008 (formerly codename Longhorn) on its dedicated servers. The updated operating system represents the most substantial upgrade of the Windows Server product line since Windows 2000 was released eight years ago.
“For many months, our business customers and engineers have been awaiting the arrival of Windows Server 2008. This operating system truly opens the doors for a new era of possibilities and opportunities, and we see its implementation as a strategic milestone for our company. Through our expertise in Microsoft technologies, we made it a priority to be one of the first hosting providers to deploy the platform across dedicated servers, and our customers are resoundingly excited,” said Eric Pratt, CEO of Server Intellect. “System administrators and software developers can leverage the enormous new feature set of Windows Server 2008 to create and manage a new class of applications. This is an important step forward.”
The new operating system includes many upgrades and additions to Web, security and virtualization technologies, including the newly implemented Hyper-V. The operating system also includes major expansions to Active Directory, Terminal Services, and introduces the long-awaited Windows PowerShell.
Windows Server 2008 is available in multiple editions to support the varying server needs of businesses of all sizes. Server Intellect will offer two main versions of Windows Server 2008, the Web Edition and Datacenter Edition. The Web addition is offered on all dedicated servers at no additional charge, and the Datacenter Edition starts at $50/monthly. A full listing of differences between the two versions is available on Server Intellect’s Website.
