Web Hosting Company RackForce Launches New Windows-Based Virtual Private Server

Launch Of New Virtual Private Server Based On Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2

RackForce Hosting has officially announced the launch of its new Virtual Private Server based on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2. RackForce is an early adopter and innovator of virtual private servers and is the first company worldwide to offer this technology to the web hosting market.

"Virtualization changes the economics of the hosting industry," said John Zanni, director of the Communications Sector at Microsoft Corp. "Windows Virtual Server lowers hardware and system management costs, enabling RackForce to focus its resources on the services and features that its customers truly want and need."

Windows offers the familiarity and ease of use people have come to expect from Microsoft. The strength of the Windows platform along with Virtual Server 2005 R2 provides security and isolation without the need for a dedicated physical server. Along with the broad number of supported applications and tools for hosters on the Windows platform, this makes RackForce's new dds200-W a natural choice.

"The feedback has been great and early acceptance of our new Virtual Private Server for Windows has been better than expected," explained Randall Robinson, RackForce General Manager. "With the lower cost, extended scalability and ease of use of this product, hosting resellers and application developers will undoubtedly see greater success. We expect to see major growth in this segment of the market."

Virtual Private Server for Windows is the latest addition to the RackForce Dynamic Dedicated Server (DDS) line of products. Named "dds200-W," it maximizes the resources of a Dual Xeon Processor server into eight separate environments. Each environment behaves exactly as a dedicated Windows server does. The package also includes Windows Server 2003 Web Edition, a 10Mbps connection, Plesk for Windows (optional) and FortiGate Firewall Intrusion Protection.
